Summer's End

Summer's end, has an amber glow
with clouds in flames, the sun set low

              Vast and sequined pale pink sky
              brings ambling breezes drifting by

Mountains are shining, valleys wait
for morning's frost and first snowflake

              Yellow aspens, shift and shimmer
              with shades of vibrant spark, and glimmer

Longer evenings have begun
while softness as the world becomes

              darker from a resting sun-
              Summer is sleeping, as day is done

With a summer's refuge, so exquisite
A weary season, is taking respite
