Come Sit With Me

Come sit with me
Beneath the weeping willow tree
We’ll talk away the hours
In summer’s peaceful tranquility

We’ll watch the beautiful sunset
Sinking low over the horizon
Feel the breeze blowing gently
As the whispering branches liven

A bright full moon is shining
Casting shadows, oh so bright
What more could we ask for
On this perfect summer night

Come sit with me
On the treasured old porch swing
We’ll swing away the hours
Listening to the crickets sing

The fire flies are dazzling
A perfect summer time show
Smell the honeysuckle blooming
With sweet fragrance to grow

We can listen to the whipper wills
As they make that unique sound
They never fail to please
My home is their stomping ground

Come sit with me
At the break of a new dawn
Say hi to the morning glories
Hear the birds sing each new song

The roses are cascading
Around every curve and bend
Pretty flowers are covered with dew
The mornings so happily send

Apple trees are blooming in the lane
Oh how sweet they can be
Decked out in pink blossoms
Waiting for you and me

All the cows are in the pasture
Nibbling on the fresh green grass
Happy as can be in the sunshine
Basking in the warmth, in high class

Come sit with me
On the bank of the little creek
We’ll sip on a tall glass of lemonade
Then jump in with both feet

We’ll enjoy every moment of each day
The nights are wonderful too
Here in my simple, country home
I promise it will all come true

There is splendor all around me
The sky is big overhead
I live in a heavenly paradise
Oh what a beautiful spread

The taste of heaven is so sweet
The air is cleaner here
If you reach up your hand
On tip toe, heaven is near

Come sit with me
In my paradise home so green
This summer time country living
Is the best I’ve ever seen

  1. Beautiful imagery, Susie. This really captures the way summertime feels.

  2. I'd love to sit with you there... We could talk for hours, drink some lemonade, and just find that wonderful peace all around us.....


    1. Thank you Betsy. I sure wish we could. We'd have a grand old time.

  4. I would love to, Susie! It sounds very near heaven to me. It is so HOT here, I only go outside early and late usually. Good to see you posting, dear friend.
