My shadow stretches out to

close
my eyes-
sounds of fall,
sun shines on my face,
summer's  last hurrah
dies away-
then I

Mortality



Morning snowfall brings his
Moist eyes one last hurrah.
Moon-flowers and blue jays,
Meandering in step.
Malignancy strides moan
Meekest as his saviors
Mourn before it all melts.

snowfall in the dell-
             spring blossom dies

sunshine on my face-
           summer's last hurrah

the tangle of Autumn-
           bonfired into smoke

candlemas evensong-
                winter's requiem

The Last Hurrah
A worthy cause
‘gainst daunting odds
A chance to set the world aright

Truths to be told
With hero bold
To champion a noble fight

‘tis all I ask
A final task
And while I still have beating heart

For win or lose
To fight I choose
For then I’ll know … I did my part

Premium Member A Parting Sting




This morn I found a world of snow,

I did not see it falling though.

It fell quietly as I slept,

Upon the slumbering land it crept.

Winter's gift, a parting sting

Before she steps aside for spring,

A final flurry, a wave goodbye.

Her last hurrah, fell from the sky.

Premium Member Cliches Away
Three sheets in the wind
And rubbed the wrong way
By a fair weather friend
You must seize the day

Let your hair down 
And lay down the law
Be the talk of the town
With your last hurrah

With all your high hopes
Few and far in between
Up against the ropes
Taking one for the team

Play your cards right
No guts no glory
Still High as a kite
The same old story...

Premium Member July the Last Hurrah
Summer is ending; we can feel it 
But we pretend we cannot
Slater our corn-on-the-cob with butter
Cutting generous slabs of watermelon
Ignoring the Back-to-School sales flyers stacking up in our box
July is the last hurrah.
The month we celebrate as wildly as we can
Knowing reality will soon set in 
And school will begin 
Because August is peeking her head in July's window.

walk with me in spring
A blue sea without waves
Under a canopy of green
Shafts of sun light  
Playing on the blooms
That are gently moving in the breeze
Children’s laughter
Mixed with a song birds call 
Accompanies the wind in the trees
Walk with me in spring
The blue bells chime
Springs arrival 
A changing of the guard
From daffodils to bluebells
Heralds the seasons change
And winters last hurrah.

Premium Member In Near Future
I see the end of summer 
Labor Day the last hurrah
Leaves and rain race each other
Puddles of color

Corn and pumpkins center stage
Holidays appearing soon
Old year giving way to new
With bold promises

Shadows in the crystal ball
Brother’s face fades in and out
Fearing to look far ahead
I avert my eyes

Last Hurrah
Lots of little moths are flitting
Near the bushes and the trees,
Such a frenzied sort of flutter,
They might stir a little breeze.

Some are solo, but more likely,
Most are traveling in groups,
Do-si-do-ing through the flora,
Doing crazy loop-di-loops.
 
In some spots, they’re like confetti
Which the wind has set a’whirl.
Guess their instincts have informed them
They’ve just time for one more twirl.

Premium Member That Evening On the Pier
We had our last hurrah that evening on the pier. Some friends of mine brought beer while some brought wine. The vista was divine. The sun began to sink as shades of rosy pink streaked teal blue sky. We joked while getting high. Back then, we never knew our friendships, like that view, would fade away. . . Written 7/10/14 by Andrea Dietrich For the ON THE PIER Poetry Contest of nette oncluad

Mardi Gras
I love to go to Mardi Gras
And see the girls cast off their bra
As if it were their sole faux-pas
In dancing through their last hurrah

I do not know just where they went
I can not guess what charms were Lent
But I suspect the knight was spent
In screwing odds they might repent

You're sure to hear old-timers say,
"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may"
But ashes mark the end of play
The fun begins on Judgment day!...

Premium Member Goodbye to Winter



A last hurrah of snow and ice
Winter's farewell, a parting sting.
But waiting there to take her place
The welcome arms of coming spring.

All around life is stirring
A reawakening mother earth.
The warming soil rejuvenating,
Bringing days of colour, and rebirth.

Short cold days, soon forgotten
As the sun sits higher in the sky.
Oh, the joy of changing seasons
Cherished each, as they pass by.

LAST HURRAH OF THE MELTING SNOWHEAPS
LAST HURRAH OF THE MELTING SNOWHEAPS

Glisten you snow heaps.
Coruscate your last 
In this sun. 
For listen  -  you show
Signs of fading fast.
The sun which now magnifies your import
Will tomorrow bleed you to nothing:
And you will be an ill-recalled memory
In the far off  sunny days of spring


………………………………………………………………………………

NOTE
Ever watched a melting snow heap 
draining its life in rivulets of jewels like liquid diamonds?

Premium Member Autumn's Reign


Gingko’s golden leaves
Intermingling maple red
Glorious carpet
Strolling through autumn’s return
Mesmerized and delighted.

Chrysanthemum blooms 
Vine maple dotting hillsides
Lingering roses
Color, color everywhere
Last call to outdoor dining

Pilfering raccoons
Raiding cornfields and orchards
Laughing at farmers
Indian summer picnicking 
Last hurrah before winter

Decrepitude
 
I love my rusty dusty car, the most entrusted car, by far; a sort of hey! Come out and play, both here at home and far away, a last hurrah, a real star, my mighty, flighty, motor car. I’ve had it now for quite a time, I bought it new and in its prime. It rumbles, crumbles, trundles on, through life’s eternal marathon. It is my friend, the best by far. Just me - and my old motor car. ~ For Suzanne's 'Synathroesmic Cat' Competition.

Mine last hurrah
        Woe is the me 
  if I without supplication
       inflict mine want

        an easy lift
 she is the petite figure 
              of
      mine last hurrah

    No petty kiss from 
      this secrete self
 ‘pon her thankful breast
   no laugh as her press
    doth reach her goal
I was smitten by her sudor

          Like hot oil
    she did glaze the me
and I without the wavering
            forgot 
      mine last hurrah
