Septembe Blues

September, you are a wistful song
Summer sheds a tear when you come along
Sunny summer melodies yield to your mellow song
Its melody fades while yours grow strong

Summer ends and a certain sadness ensues
Sunny days make way for winter blues
September gives us glimpses of summer
Though days be short and golden leaves slumber

The vibrant colors September brings
disguise the coming winter sting
As summer dies it makes one last sunny stand
But will return, for thats how it was planned

Until then we must endure a harsh season
All bundled up, keeping warm is the reason
When the first snow  falls
The pristine beauty leaves us enthralled

Soon summer will begin anew
Gray clouds make way for skies of blue
We awaken from our winter slumber
And welcome the butterflies of summer

For Joanne Grisetti's Copy Cat contest

:Inspired by the poem: September
Which was written by: Andrea Dietrich

    Joseph, you have told me this is inspired by my September poem and I am honored that my poem inspired a poem of beauty such as this one from you. Since this is for the Copycat poetry contest, I am wondering if you have already entered it. You need to put my name and my poem that inspired this at the bottom of the page if you want to enter it into the contest. I sure hope it does well for you. Thanks for using my poem for your inspiration. luv, Andrea
