At Summer's End

When Autumn veils my season's smile and lingers in the air a while . . . though Indian days be gold spun, my summering will come undone. Night's shadows fall more quickly now; birds sooner too forsake their bough. No tarrying for old friend Sun when summering becomes undone. Oh, warmth of Summer, leave me not. Through Winter's frost I grow distraught. The melancholy has begun; my summering will come undone. As Autumn veils my season's smile, my summering will come undone. (kyrielle in sonnet form) 8/24/13 For Summer's End contest of Francine Roberts

    Another season past it's prime. Another reason and a rhyme. The past is written to not be read. Time marches on, enough is said. Beautiful poem Andrea. Peace. :)

    ABSOLUTELY SUPERB! Andrea...your command of words is awe inspiring. I mean that. It's not some gushy sentimental mush, although I AM in that mood at the moment! Thanks for your comment on my latest poem. I'm horrified that you saw the mistakes I had in that one. My dear, I posted it at 2:00 am. It just popped into my head, and I had to get it out. Shame on me. Why didn't you point them out? I would have taken it from you with grace! Next time! Silly red line! Overinvest IS one word! ;) HUGS!!!
