"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."

- (from Summer Wind by Frank Sinatra)
