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. This was used for Summer's End Contest

    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
