Summer's End

One last trip to the ocean shore
One last stroll along the beach
One last sunset of red skies galore
Now, that summer’s end we reach

One last trip to the ice cream stand
One last hammock filled nap
One last serenade by the outdoor band
Now, that summer has made her final lap

One last night sleeping under the stars
One last boardwalk bicycle ride
One last time with the roof down on the cars
Now, that summer has bid goodbye

It has been so nice to see you again, my friend
I am always sorry when summer reaches her end

    I found this to be sad too. :( Although living in Florida I am always glad to see summer end, this filled me with melancholy. Great work.
