Magic Of A Summer’s Breeze to True Love: Songify Princess Bride 
The song of love is carried on the summer's breeze 
The song of love is carried in a fantasy 


Magic Of A Summer’s Breeze (English sonnet) 

Fulfill the magic of a summer’s breeze
Sweet jasmine marks your music in the air
Each breath of life feels Joy about to flare
There waits a moment only you can please
-
The sun awaits a hint that you are there
So it can light a symphony in trees
Such songs of birds and flowers love decrees
An instant always is about to share
-
Such memories will time commit to streams
Which cause a heart to beat upon a day
And listen for the whisperings of bliss
-
Fulfill the summers of my endless dreams
Grant everything of meaning satin sway
With melodies enchanted by a kiss 


A lover lost in summer delights which she made so real is sung through this English sonnet. As most sonnets of this type, this one is broken into two parts.The first part (the quatrains) gives examples. The second part (the triplets) deals with generalities (at least until the kiss). 

Summers have always been Arlene's and my favorite time of the year. During our time, Hawaii was the must place to go. For years Arlene bothered me about going to Hawaii. For years I successfully skirted the issue. Then Arlene's cousin and wife, Jeff and Janice, moved Maui. They were always great to go out with. so when they asked us to visit them Arlene finally won; and Hawaii here we come. We stayed at the Hyatt, with a great view of the inland. Here we were in Hawaii with so much to see, so much to do. That was not Arlene's plan. She and Janice went out shopping. Jeff and I tallied along. We did not even attend one of the luaus, happening each night. Jeff and Janice took us around to their favorite dance clubs. And so the days went. In my mind, I wondered. "We came all the way to Hawaii for this." With one day to go Jeff and Janice took to a luau/dinner. After dinner came the Polynesian dancers. They finished their performance by selecting people from the audience to join them. Arlene was one of the people selected. Then I woke up. As I watched Arlene dance I realized that I was in paradise with the most beautiful treasure on earth. It must have been obvious because Jeff said to me, "You got it, brother." On the final day, I was rewarded by the return of some of things I missed. Hawaii was more.

Hawaii was a great lesson for me. On the island of Maui, there is plenty to see and do for us tourists. With all these "things" calling, it was Arlene, not me, who wanted to go to Hawaii. Another note: whenever I go to a new restaurant, I order things I tasted elsewhere. This gives me a starting point, a perspective. When I went to Hawaii I could have made Arlene my perspective. Shopping in Hawaii and meeting the people was her dream. How many people get to see, be a part of, vacation in someone else's dream? Life is wonderful. Let us open our self up and Enjoy.

Love can be a fantasy 


The Princess Bride is a 1987 romantic fantasy adventure comedy-drama film directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner, and starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant and Christopher Guest. Adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel of the same name, it tells the story about a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by befriended companions along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck. The story is presented in the film as a book being read by a grandfather (Peter Falk) to his sick grandson (Fred Savage). 
Songify and Schmoyoho have created a love song from the movie. "True Love: Songify Princess Bride"

  1. I enjoyed reading your English sonnet. I've learnt a new type of sonnet. Well done. Is the rhyming scheme specific? I haven't been to Hawaii, sounds like a nice place to visit. You got there in the end, following your partners trend, of wanting to go, to show you the flow. Have a good week, Martin.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

    1. Most classical English sonnets follow these rhyme schemes: A/B/B/A B/A/A/B C/D/E C/D/E or A/B/B/A B/A/A/B C/D C/D C/D. Your English sonnets are perfectly acceptable.
      Thank you for asking.
      Be blessed and have fun

  2. I like the interlocking rhymes you use so often, very skillful. As for being part of someone else dream, that's the ultimate jackpot.

    Have an awesome week.

  11. What a beautiful and lovely poem. A dream can be wonderful. I went to Hawaii once, it was amazing...

  12. What a romantic poem and I love your Hawai story. The Maoris in New Zealand are Polynesian as well and therefore I recognise the word Maui as lots of the legends of the Maori evolve around Maui, a mythological figure

  13. May we always find ourselves living in a dream,

  14. "the whisperings of bliss" What a delightful sound.

    I love your aha! moment, when you saw and heard the bliss in your lady's dancing. That is what love does to us, isn't it? It allows us to be happy (happiest, even) when those who hold our heart get their wish.

  17. __ At an >estate sale< long ago, I acquired a small book that was published in 1945, "There Is A Spirit." It is an assembly of James Nayler's Sonnets from the early 17th century, as collected by Kenneth Boulding.
    __ Ah the two sides... the plausible questions and possible answers... within each day's life, so well seen in your post, Martin! _m
