Summers' End

The waning days of summer
are the saddest of the year,
nature wears a solemn face
as dying time draws near.

One by one the flowers fade
as life slows to a crawl, 
nature seems to sense its fate
when summer turns to fall.

How I wish it wasn't so,
but summer cannot last,
fall is racing close behind
in front of winter's blast.

Our lives are like the seasons,
death comes to one and all,
what will then become of me
when summer turns to fall.

    Considering your last name, I got a kick out of your last line, but the poem is so beautifully worded. I especially liked, "summer cannot last, fall is racing close behind in front of winter's blast." It does seem like the seasons spin by so quickly, John. I also saw your comment on Jan Williams poem and want to thank you for encouraging her to get some help. She has left vulgar comments on a lot of great poets' works and Joyce Johnson did nothing to deserve to be a target. Love, Carolyn
