Summer's End




Turning, turning, summer turns to fall

Slowly fade the greens to red and gold

The lovely evenings have a hint of sorrow

For summer softly announces her departure

Slowly fade the greens to red and gold

We savor the last days and nights of splendor

For summer softly announces her departure

And the winds of fall begin to speak

Slowly fade the greens to red and gold

The lovely evenings have a hint of sorrow

We savor the last days and nights of splendor

Turning, turning, summer turns to fall

    Dear BG, A beautifully written Pantoum! Guess I'm the only one who's eager to see summer go. Fall only lasts a few weeks here, but the cooler months are the best time for outdoor activities. "Nights of splendor" is quite a romantic description of this period when summer turns to fall. Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn

    Full marks to you Barbara on a lovely rendition of this Pantoum. Repetition looks easy, but it I know you put much thought into it. I enjoyed the gentle passage from summer to autumn. Have a lovely Day! // paul

    Barbara, If these Pantoum's are not written discriminately they sound trite. This poem is anything but trite. You have mastered the art of integrating your repeating lines seamlessly with a lovely flow. Brava!

    Nicely done Barbara. As we took our evening stroll you could feel fall in the air and a few birch leave turning yellow announcing the approach of fall.
