Adverse to Autumn’s Arrival

Brick pathway with scattered pink rose petals

Today

In the garden

I saw hints of Autumn

And I’m not ready to bid Summer

Goodbye

Cinquain

I realized today that August is nearly over and that in about one month Autumn will arrive and I am not at all ready for that!

Summer got started here a month late, and I’m just not looking forward to losing those long warm sunny days yet.

Ah, but every year I fight a losing battle as Summer runs and Winter walks and I can’t do anything about it.

Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day, sunshine, daffodils in bloom
Let not your melancoly heart hold to drear

The daffodils speak of Spring coming soon

Should your nostalgic mind be given to fear

Take a stroll through the Daffodils this mid-noon

No matter the gloomy forecasts you hear

Yellow Daffodils sing Springtime’s tune

So come, shed Winter’s heavy cloak of grey,

Take a walk among the Daffodils today
