Amy Nic an Chrosáin – Dearest Summer
By Amy Nic an Chrosáin
How long I have waited in anticipation for your arrival, but your arrival has by far exceeded all expectations.
Shakespeare once said “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day…” but how can that be? For you, my dear, are beyond compare. You light up any room simply by your presence, you have the ability to brighten anyone’s day, you have been an absolute delight to be with these past three months.
I feel our time together flew by much too quickly. Perhaps you could stay longer next time? I do love your visits.
During your stay you have been a delight. You joined me for a cold drink at the beach (which without you would have been dull and dreary), you walked with me on the promenade in the glow of the evening sun and you stargazed beside me in the cool breeze of the night. Without you, my dear, my spare time would have surely been dull and wasted.
Although you have been wonderful to be with, I am sad to say I noticed a decrease in your energy and usual brightness. You seemed to have had a raincloud over you towards the end of your visit. I do hope you’re okay. I hate seeing you anything but your usual joyful self.
I am already counting down the days until your next visit. It cannot come soon enough.
Missing you with every breath,
Amy Nic an Chrosáin, 2nd year student
