The Going Green

Sooner now does daylight fade
and with it a summer die,
as green becomes a brighter shade
and for a short time says goodbye.

A welcomed change of pace
to what these eyes have seen,
blazing red and orange replace
the swiftly going green.

Like fire dancing on the limbs
a new breath with each new breeze,
flickering in brights and dims
alighting amongst the trees.

Rekindled life flows in their veins
as another season takes it's rest,
and shaken off the summer rains
prepares for fall, a temporary guest.

Waving leaves do remember when
knowing this farewell is not forever,
the going green comes back again
after the most beautiful autumn ever.

    Beautiful appreciation of the seasons, and the colour green. We are soon to move into summer, and with that the green will fade. But like you say, it will be back.

    A most delightful poem, Kelly....waving goodbye to summer green, while acknowledging autumn's arrival, in the knowledge that the wheel will turn full circle. Warm regards ~ paul

    Very nice seasonal poem with clever rhymes! I have volunteered at Poets House for many years - most modern poets do not rhyme. The masters from the 19th century usually did. I just broke up with my girlfriend - she did leave me with a CD of Mr.Poe. At least something came of it! I firmly hope that you are well and continue to write! I make some money from writing but not enough to live on so I continue to work at the community college. Good health, peace & love to you! Matthew Anish
