The carcass of beauty spent and done picked clean by scavengers of time, whose sated memories of summer ask for no quarter and offer none. Winter winds tango with scattered leaves in tune with a different drummer, spinning fragments of color and light into chromatic threads, Autumn weaves. A scarecrow showing signs of neglect looks outlandish with no crops in sight, a hobo haphazardly homespun on guard with naught but mud to protect. When fledgling goslings learn how to fly geese follow the monarch butterfly and flock south, their honks splitting the sky bidding summer's withered bloom goodbye. (Rhyme) “The carcass of beauty spent and done” William Shakespeare. 02/16/2020 Lines to Awaken your Muse Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Joseph May “The carcass of beauty spent and done”
