THIS IS MY SUMMER REQUIEM

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

BY S.C.MITCHELL
SEPTEMBER 2015.

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Like one with slippered feet - the summer sun
Moves silently across her beaten path - as lower
Now - she dips her head in golden light and glorious
Rays - for fear lest those with saddened eyes - cause her
To pause awhile more - as cooler eves replace her
Warmer - pleasant nights of yester days - alas -
With clouded eyes - her time has come - with
Longing sighs and backward glance - she
Bids farewell - she cannot stay -
She must be gone .


This is her lowly curtsy now - a costume change from
Multitudes of greens -and glorious array of every fruit and
Flower- that she could say - See what I've done - all this for you -
To please your heart and satisfy your every need - and cover every
Fragrant bower with pure delight - until that inner joy welled up - like
Bubbling brooks and sweet refreshing showers - but -
Regrettably - I cannot stay - I must step back -
And take my bow - and-
Slip away .

This is my Summer Requiem - to herald in the golden sunset
Skies - that speaks  of Autumn's entrance now - when  leaves -
Transformed into a work of art - can feast the eyes in blankets of
Their lustrous reds and golds - and russet hues - and soften the most
Hardened cynic's heart - and drive away the melancholic's blues - and
Leave a gentle footprint - that forbids all anxious fears and pending
Gloom to start - and says - Be thou at peace -  though
change will surely come - it shall
Be well - dear heart.


"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Here we are again at the end of Summer time in Britain , when the
air starts to feel cooler and the Autumn leaves are beginning to
show their deeper colours to tell us times of change are with
us yet again .

For some , this is a time of sadness , because the beauty of summer
is fading fast and the darker nights will soon be setting in , but it
doesn't have to be that way . All the Seasons are beautiful in
their own way , and we should learn to embrace the changes
with a contented heart .

So it is with life for each one of us .

The changing years each hold their own special joys , and I pray
that whatever stage of life you are at right now , it will be one of
Love , joy and peace for you my friends.

God bless you always
Stella ><
