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
But the days are warm
Your hand still lingers
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
Who are retreating
And will soon be a memory
Like so many summers before you
A sweet warm memory
Au revoir mon ami
