Being the first Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 142 of the month, Colleen allows us the freedom to choose our own words…

Double Etheree – The Summer Bids Farewell by Sally Cronin

With
sadness
I utter
the words goodbye,
to warm days though brief
that boosted my morale.
The glow that has bronzed my skin,
reminds me of the longer days,
of a summer that has been too short,
though bolstered me for the winter to come.
But, in the interim we have autumn.
A welcome season of fruitfulness.
Leaves will turn gold and apples red,
with fields stripped of their harvest
Soon we will give our thanks
for all this bounty
that fill the stores,
giving life,
through dark
months.
