Summer Wind- Frank Sinatra

The summer wind came blowin' in
From across the sea
It lingered there to touch your hair
And walk with me

All summer long
we sang a song
And then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind

Like painted kites, those days and nights
They went flying by
The world was new beneath the blue
Umbrella sky

Then softer than a piper man
One day, it called to you
I lost you I lost you to
The summer wind

The autumn wind
And the winter winds
They have come and gone
And still those days
Those lonely days
They go on and on
And guess who’s sigh`s
His lullabies through nights that never end
My fickled friend,
The summer wind
The summer wind warm summer wind
Mmm the summer wind

I absolutely adore this song, its perfect for Valentines Day. The picture is of Capemay, NJ, just up the coast from Brigantine Beach, where we go every summer. I guess I'm old-fashioned, but I think it would so romantic to spend Valentines in a cotton dress sailing along the shore, walking the boards, and slow-dancing to Frank Sinatra. All I need is a sweetheart and I've got my eye on someone ;)
