                                           I am like the swan
                                      flying to warmer countries
                                    When autumn sings her song
                                   As a fleeting image in a mirror
                                          comes the longing
                                    Missing  the flower meadow,
                                   blue sea and beautiful sunset
                             The air is warm and gentle on my face
                                        Soon I have to let go ...
                                               meeting the autumn and winter
                                       No summer lasts forever

    This poem has a great metaphor within it. The winter months do feel like our deaths at times. So, we should embrace summer and autumn while we have them!...This poem was beautifully written!

    A great comment on life, as well. Written so sparingly, one wonders how so many meanings were included.

    A beautiful poem which depicts the beauty of summer. The beauty of this piece lingers on even after one has gone through every word and line that constitutes this wonderful work of art.

    I don't know if you intended them, but there are some wonderful metaphors to aging and the passage of time. Even if you didn't intend them, the poem is beautiful as-is. Lovely imagery... Jack
