Summer's Going Fast

      "Live in each season as it passes: breathe the air,
       drink, taste the fruit and resign yourself to the
       influence of the earth." Henry David Thoreau
                                 ~ ~ ~

Oh dear- our summer's going fast
     with August, more than half-way, done.
          Each day grows shorter with less sun; 
               but how we wish this stage could last.

                      September seems much closer now;
                               just yesterday, came spring's rebirth.
                               So soon, the autumn paints the earth
                     from greens to golds- redos each bough.

               And so it goes, each season's stay
          is but a gift earth grants in stride.
     Embrace the pleasures they provide-
those special joys they bring our way.

    I am absolutely certain I remarked on how wonderful this poem was Sandra. There have been a few of my comments that have disappeared and I am not alone. What happens to them? Anyway I am so happy to see this in first place it's absolutely beautiful Sandra. Congratulations! : ) xxoo

    Susan, this is beautiful. The photo's ever-changing picture sets the stage so well. Thoreau probably appreciated nature more than most people, but we all see the days growing shorter as summer comes to a close and it can make us sad. I hope you are doing well. I have loved using the soaps your daughter made. Hugs, carolyn

    Nicely written, Sandra, I could feel the seasons changing as I read. Best of luck in the contest. John
