Au revoir l'été (goodbye summer)...


The first leaves fall
Change color
Drift in warm breeze
The sun
It shifts in the sky
Taking a different view
Shadows grow longer
Nights earlier
Cooler
But the days are warm
Your hand still lingers
Slightly
As you loosen your grip
Slowly slipping away  
And your cousin, Autumn
Once a distant thought
Is now in full view
But it is now you
Summer
Who are retreating
And will soon be a memory
Like so many summers before you
A sweet warm memory
Au revoir mon ami
