THE ENDING OF CAPRICE

Written by: nette onclaud






Tangy summer , breezes in heat Through minutes you forestall And drench the moonlight so replete Beneath your fiery kohl. The silken air drapes blossoms scent Releasing fragrant balm Then rustles every tree’s lament In fading season’s psalms. Mild nights release stars’ blinking glow Caressing burnished ease, That only your zest can bestow The ending of caprice. Beneath the parting of glossed beams As days wither in space; My August passion falls downstream Yet held in your embrace. Summer's End Contest of Francine Roberts 8/26/2013
