Because My Heart is in July

shifting away from June's bud to leave dandelions scattered in the yard
this dawn of July marks the end of a lie
a lie from past season for a strong reason

in July robin will make herself shy 

and cover her reddish breast with her celestial hued crest
then flap her wings to fly close against the sky

I want to kiss July and make July lasting forever
in beauty but not ephemeral
I will preserve July on my canvas and with magic brush
so that she will be enthralled and blush
I will paint July with charming colour
so that she will be captured in delight
and her soul enraptured

because my heart is in July
