Summer's end

 I heard autumn's voice as it echoed  that  day
Telling summer it must  end
Summer then sighed, and teary eyed, reluctantly went away

Colors of red and gold autumn did send
But the sun diminished in warmth
Telling summer it must end

Gone were the  butterflies fluttering charms
 they seemed to have  flown away with the wind
As the sun diminished in warmth

The hummingbirds too were harder to find
They knew that summer was through
 they  also   floated   away with the wind

The trees mourned  the loss of their leaves too
 And the flowers could no longer abide
They knew that summer was through

 I listened awhile  as I stood outside 
And I heard autumn's voice as it echoed that day
And when  the flowers could no longer abide
Summer then sighed, and teary eyed, reluctantly went away
