Summer's Good bye

The dog days of summer
are barking furiously at an approaching September..

Rusty faced sunflowers count their days
while bobbing less enthusiastically in a dying August wind..

Golden rod waves anxiously to passing motorists
as pruple shadows of the prairie grow long..

Flaxen wheat shivers and rustles in a dying afternoon
of russet grasses and lonesome crickets..

Harvest moon of firey red
trembles nervously on the darkening hills

Close the book on a weary summer
and let the grand lady of the colours make her entrance..

    A grand way to part ways with summer and welcome the glorious winter!

    What wonderful poetry I am reading today and so diverse. I have not read a bad poem yet today. I am enjoying reading each and everyone from old poets and new poets alike. Lots of amazing contest entries also. Thank you for sharing yours with us today Valerie. Love, Carol
