At Summer's End

When Autumn veils my season's smile and lingers in the air a while . . . though Indian days be gold spun, my summering will come undone. Night's shadows fall more quickly now; birds sooner too forsake their bough. No tarrying for old friend Sun when summering becomes undone. Oh, warmth of Summer, leave me not. Through Winter's frost I grow distraught. The melancholy has begun; my summering will come undone. As Autumn veils my season's smile, my summering will come undone.

I agree w/the chorus of praise from the other poetesses/poets, Andrea. Elegant and beautiful. Well done. You didn't get my "Wisdom of a Child" poem. The child can't say the "s" sound yet. The child instead says the "h" sound. Sugar becomes hugar and salt becomes halt. Re-read it and it makes perfect sense. Ty for the interest though. I love seeing children learn developmentally. Fascinating. Anywho, will read more of your work. You're real talented. Much love, dear.
