Day 48: Summer Love Poem

Sun and summer are perfect subject matter for love. And used to endearing effect here in this short poem.

Simple, but very sweet.

Summer Love Poem - Nikki Giovanni

Clouds float by on a summer sky
I hop scotch over to you.

Rainbows arch from ground to gold
I climb over to you.

Thunder grumbles, lightning tumbles
and I bounce over to you.

Sun beams back and catches me
smiling over at you.


  1. I loved this poem as it is short, light and yet it catches the essence of summer fully. One actually feels the sunshine and the thunder and lightning etc as if though one is right there. Love xo

  2. Glad you liked it! It's a gorgeous wee poem, catching the full essence of giddy summer love too :)
