THE MELANCHOLY OF SEPTEMBER HAS ARRIVED

The cypresses' leaves are vibrant and green, summer refuses
to leave as swallows wait for cold winds to depart; 
chilly rain keeps all warblers in their nests hidden from intruders!


Yesterday's sun rays were pleasant to the senses of the dreamy mind
as we sat on the bench and cherished them for long;
evening came and clouds gathered and heard no single crickets' sound. 


The melancholy of September has arrived a bit too soon,
Venice's narrow streets are deserted and silent;
rooftops drip as rain falls harder,very somber is the lagoon! 


A couple wearing long, black raincoats crosses the Rialto Bridge,
a yellow umbrella shelters them as their breaths steam;
no tourists frequent Saint Mark's Square under a sky so beige! 


Sultry sky of Venice, sunlight will restore life and make you beautiful again...   
pigeons will return and gondoliers will sing areas until the coming of dawn!

    Please give once over to the form of Terza Rima, Andrew, especially the middle line rhyming if it is for the contest.
