Summer's Demise

Somber leaves bleed a fond farewell,
Autumn enchants with solstice spell.
Echoes of reminiscence befell dog-day skies,
Gray swept along as the crow flies.

Hallowed dusk creeps closer still,
Perpetual clocks feel the chill. 
Jack frost skates down the lane,
In his wake of icy reign.

Amber russet backyard piles,
Children one last bemused wiles.
Candy corn, cinnamon spices,
Sugar cookies, apple-dumpling slices.

Samhain carries his butcher knife,
Craven pumpkins run for their life.
Masquerading with bottomless bags,
Demons, monsters, old green hags.

Shadows dance on summer's demise,
Harvest moon gingerly arise.
Wolf wales disguised as a breeze,
Falling victim to winter's freeze.
