The sun lowers, the remaining heat moves down my back,
This summer’s night is coming to an end,
Such beautiful views, the light hitting the clouds,
I’m going to rest here until the day has gone.
The smell of the sunflowers comes and goes,
Just a light breeze carries it under my nose,
The tall grass waves as if it is greeting me,
Maybe it wants me to stay.
Shall I get on up and move forward?
Then I’ll be lost in this field of beauty forever.
