The Last Gasp of Summer


Have you noticed the subtle change in the air

Cooler evenings, still very warm days and fair

Lawns, gardens, flower beds still needing care


But harvesting has begun, fewer blooms on many plants

Cocoons beginning to form, not for the still very busy ants

Some color showing on certain trees and shrubs one grants


While some flowers fade,chrysanthemums come into their own

Even some now in bright full bloom

And of course, shorter days noticeably in summer's gloom

Shorter days in summer's gloom


The Last Gasp of Summerr (c)2013 Quentin Clingerman
