The summer knows she's ending soon
As she blows her goodbye kiss to the moon
And the hues of flowers have slowly died
As the voice of summer softly sighs
In the eve of approaching autumn mist
She bids the Earth her farewell kiss
Promising us her seasonal greeting
When she'll return her summer meetings

Summer's hush tickles the countryside
As the moon sprinkles light over midnight skies
And the summer softly sings her farewell tune
As she gently strokes Heavens of violet blue  

She sings her crowning lullaby
Softly caressing the darkening sky
Teasing the Earth in her splendid hues
Walking hand in hand with the autumn new

Dancing stars and constellations sigh
Ushering in the fall as summer draws nigh
She softly sings her goodbye tune
Blowing her final kiss to the moon
Clouds descend in autumn wed -
While she sleeps safe and sound ...
In Mother Nature's midnight bed


                                                                  ***~~~***
