Poem – Memories

Hello my lovely readers! I’m very happy to announce that I have officially survived the first week of my Senior year without any major mishaps. šŸ˜€ Plus I have officially applied to my first university, and am well on my way to applying to my second. It’s kind of scary, but also super exciting!!

This week I’m back with another poem for you… I wrote it as a sort of ‘farewell to summer’. Because summer is 100% the best season in my opinion, thus when it ends, my heart is sad and needs to mourn the loss. And apparently I mourn summer best by writing poetry about it. šŸ˜€ So yes, I hope you enjoy!

Golden summer days
Slip by as if a dream
The burnished brightness
Of the sun
Ever fading into
The soft silver
Of the moon

Days move slowly
Like a stream of amber honey
But moments drift too fast
To grasp and pin to


Bare feet dangle
In a gurgling stream
Browned hands gather
A rainbow of flowers
Freckled face smiles
At the sun who smiles down
Hopeful heart beats
With the rhythm of the earth
These are the moments
That make
The memories

Golden warmth of day
Meets silver soft of night
Mingling and melding
In a gentle kiss of life
As the moments
We grasp so tightly
Become memories


Let’s chat in the comments down below about summer! Do you love it with a fiery passion like I do, or are you ready for the chill of Autumn to arrive?? šŸ™‚

  1. I’m with you, Hannah. Summer has always been my favorite season too for all the reasons you mentioned as well as: long break from school work, camp, longer days of sunshine, flowering plants, green leaves, warmth allowing sandals, capris, and no jackets, etc. Liked this poem and how you ended stanzas 2, 3, 4 about moments making memories.


  2. This is really beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
    I do enjoy summer a lot. But I like all the seasons. Summer went by way too fast this year, so I am a bit sad that it’s over, but I’m not too upset that fall colors and pumpkins spices and pretty things autumn themed are coming. šŸ˜€


    1. Thanks for commenting, Libby!! Yes, I really feel you – summer totally went wayyyy to fast for me this year. But yes, there is plenty of beauty in fall to come!


  3. Ahhh love this!! ā¤ Summer is a wonderful season, and I love all of the memories that it holds… I gotta say, though, my heart is taken with fall… šŸ˜‰ šŸ˜‰ ā¤ Lovely poem, though! ā¤


    1. Aye, I suppose Autumn is alright as well. I’ll grudgingly admit it. šŸ˜‰ Jk my dear, I still do love Autumn, though summer must hold first sway in my heart. šŸ˜‰
