Adieu, Summer




Oh summer, we will miss you. We will miss the bright green foliage, now beginning to fade to golden hues; the life-filled flowers and plants now withered and brittle; berry-stained lips, frog-song symphonies; fresh flowers on the table; not-so-small-anymore water sprites; the bare feet in the soil; the joy-filled vacations. Until next year, we bid you adieu!


...Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
 
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
 
~Robert Louis Stevenson
