On a Baby Summer Day

Sunbeams spy
upon skin
dressed for a summer's day
Farming grass
with crops of blankets
scattered over lawn-
green and freshly cut
Birds tweet
bees buzz
Scattering sound
surrounds body,
diminished by earthy ground
Eyelids closed
to brightened dark
Sun peeking through skin
begging,
for eyes opened
and breath breathed in
on a baby summer day

Especially love the line "Eyelids closed to brightened dark".

I enjoy the opening lines: "Sunbeams spy upon skin dressed for a summer's day," and the tone, rhythm, and lyricism of this poem, and the whole concept of a Baby Summer Day- an early summer day just getting used to itself, begging for your participation.

This is wonderful - a sweet awakening. I'll come back and read it on a "Baby Summer Day".
