At Summer's End

When Autumn veils my season's smile and lingers in the air a while . . . though Indian days be gold spun, my summering will come undone. Night's shadows fall more quickly now; birds sooner too forsake their bough. No tarrying for old friend Sun when summering becomes undone. Oh, warmth of Summer, leave me not. Through Winter's frost I grow distraught. The melancholy has begun; my summering will come undone. As Autumn veils my season's smile, my summering will come undone.

    Loved this winning, heart warming poem. Did you mash Kyrielle with a Sonnet? It reads great. I have responded to your comments on my poems but I do not think you will read them. I asked you a question about my poem Lady Constance if you wanted to engage. Cheers always great to have you stopping by especially with your encouraging comments. Thanks
