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.
— Johnny Mercer
This week’s song invokes images of the ocean, the ending of summer, the loneliness that comes with lost love. We traveled to the Atlantic Ocean 2 years ago and took in the sunset on the last day of summer.
Linking up with a song-inspired party, Song-ography, where the theme this week is “The Summer Wind” by Johnny Mercer, recorded by Frank Sinatra. Photos are edited with Kim Klassen’s textures Storm and Kristen.
