Farewell Summer

I feel the chill as the night falls

Sooner than ever before

Each day permitted diminished light

A portent of what's in store

Fall's approach is sneaking

Green leaf with yellow tinge

Summer is always leaving us

‘Tis life on the northern fringe

The gardens belch last offerings

Bask in the waning heat

Tomatoes burst red on the vine

Fruit ripe and ready to eat

Was summer only months ago?

Fiddled about and squandered

Or did we scurry frantically?

Instead should we have sauntered?

The still-warm breeze so pleasant

Consoled for no time’s wasted

If all that’s left are memories

Of how sweet this summer tasted…
