Farewell to Thee, Summer

Farewell to thee, summer, and to all of thy days
In which I had laughed, in which I had played;
To all of the joys you brought unto me,
And the moments bequeathed unto my memory.

Farewell to thee, summer, though in part you are missed;
A cold winter’s beckon I cannot resist,
Nor the time of peace that it brings to the land
From the scorching furies dealt by your hand.

Farewell to thee, summer, for a time we shall part;
Sometimes I will miss you, but you will stay in my heart.
In many ways, you are both fiend and friend;
And I know in due season, you will come again.

    Tara, your personalisation of the seasons with its metaphoric message, weighs in the good with the bad, balancing the elements as we do in life. A beautiful write.
