Summer arrived late this year.
It too must end.
One single golden leaf dangling from a tree,
A sure sign that Summer is ending.
Soon trees swaying in the wind will lose leaves.
Sounds of Summer will no longer be heard:
music in the air
giggles and squeals
crickets all through the night
going to beaches, boating
barbecues, picnics, outdoor cooking, camping
Puffy clouds, blue skies turning gray
Sunshine warmth fades away
Flowers on display fall asleep
The end is coming
Summer will close its curtains.
