Summer Reflection

I remember summers past
My arms around pretty women 
Making love on the beach or in a car 
Summer brings romance in its wake 
The years come and go 
This evening I flipped on my "Festival of Lights:" CD
Soon autumn will come with the NY Giants 
heading off to battle 
and the high holiday services 
which I always used to attend with my father 
He is gone now 
But I'm still here!
The presidential elections are coming, too 
Someone will win  - others go down to defeat 
Our nation survives, friends 
For all its faults  - it is our homeland 
Let us hope love triumphs over hate 
So we Americans can continue to live decent lives

Yes, we should enjoy these last few weeks of summer while they are here. Although, the autumn season offers much to look forward to, as well... Some very nice memories you've shared here and thoughts of what is to come. Well done, Matthew.

Yes, let's hope. But too much division. There is no center anymore. Great write! Lots to think about.
