Summer’s here when night falls slowly
O’er a long extended dusk.
The air is still
And hot and muggy
April still has yet to come.
But the summer night falls slowly
Street lights come on one by one;
Gradually the dark sky twinkles
Stars and planets burnished bright
Towers rise like half lit candles
Reaching to a darkened sky
And the summer night fall gently
Wraps the world in its embrace.
