Goodbye Summer!

Poem By Marilyn Lott

Yes, it’s time to say goodbye now
We’ll miss her so very much
She gave us many smiles
With her fragrant brilliant touch

Summer’s pink and white impatiens
Filled numerous pots and corners
Nearly spent now as we feel
A bit like nature’s mourners

The green leaves that we love as well
Will turn their autumn colors
Reds and yellows so magnificent
Always spectacular like no others

There is a chill that fills the air is now
A turning point for sure
Earthiness is taking over
From summer so sweet and pure

But it’s okay, don’t you think?
As our seasons come and go
We’ll have winter and then spring
Before the summer we love so!

Comments about Goodbye Summer!

Summer like a woman radiant and loving is missed, for in place 'a chill that fills the air is now/ A turning point for sure/ Earthiness is taking over...'. Interesting description.

The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too

So many choices that we can pursue
