goodbye to summer

"summer" is almost gone
her cascade of lilac and roses
entwined on white fences
diminish, give way to "autumn's blush"

i see the "distorted sunrise"
peek at me from the branches
the fresh yellow-orange "almost autumn" leaves
slightly dance,beneath "autumn's breath"
i see her beauty, yet i know in my "seasoned mind"
that "reflections lie"

the "color of october"
will fall blank within "November's wind"
leaving me "longing"
for "shades of blue" in summer's skies
