Summer Breeze

"The summer wind, came blowin in - from across the sea
It lingered there, so warm and fair - to walk with me
All summer long, we sang a song - and strolled on golden sand
Two sweethearts, and the summer wind
Like painted kites, those days and nights - went flyin by
The world was new, beneath a blue - umbrella sky
Then softer than, a piper man - one day it called to you
And I lost you, to the summer wind
The autumn wind, and the winter wind - have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days - go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies - through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind."
1965 song, music by Henry Mayer, lyrics by Johnny Mercer

Pastel, 5 x 7, $125.

Now only is the painting a moving experience but so is the song you put with it. What lyrical movement in both.
