Summer is gone

 We gather around to bid adieu
To the fluttering colors of the butterfly
We wave goodbye to the birds too
While  summer prepares to die

The flowers are also fading away
And the sun  shortens his stay
 We know that summer will soon be dead
We dread the bleak winter  days ahead

The easy days of summer will soon end
A season that we considered a friend
Now we can't help but weep
As summer takes a long sleep

On the coldest of winter days
We will miss  its warm embrace
When skies are bleak and gray
We will pine for  its  sunny face

    gosh you did TWO on this theme. Way to go, Joseph. But if you are entering the terzanelle in the contest, That is probably the better choice. I had not realized yesterday that it was a terzanelle. such a difficult form to do. wow, that is awesome.
