Autumn Joys in Alaska for contest

When the summer runs away
    and the sea wind screams for snow 
Scarlet woods will whisper sway
Fickle leaves blow to and fro.

I smell memories in the air
     and it makes me yearn to run
When north breezes toss my hair
      and the frost is kissed by sun.

Come walk the fjord with me
      in the golden hours of day.
Blue dusk will woo the sea--
    It's a vibrant love display.

In the evening we will stroll 
    follow puffs of frozen breath--
While the Northern Lights patrol
Sending summer to its death.

    simply FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IN EVERY MEANING THIS is SUCH A DESERVED WIN! I realise now that the impact of the end of summer is so much bigger than where I live... Death of summer sounded so ' defenitive' but in Alaska it MUST feel THIS way....... :+) Ellie Daphne
