The eyes are the connection to the soul.
I looked at her for the first time
Captivated by her beauty.

There are long days and warm days during the summer’s might,
While the sun shares all of its blinding bright light,
The short summer months are when nature is bountiful;
Though, humans make time to make memories that are wonderful.
