    mourning suns
    eulogize
    summers passing

    _Summer quickly fades here, thanks for your warm reminder... spring will return. _M

    Very nice Sandra! Summer is long gone here in the northern Rockies of Montana as well.

    hoarfrost
    on every branch and twig . . .
    crystal morning

    Cupfuls of dew
    for the crickets' thirst...
    leaves of rose

    Sandra, a sad song.

    Wizened yellow apples
    along the roadside
    summer's farewell

    is this to be
    your first winter--
    noisy english sparrow

    dusty summer gone
    recently somewhere
    autumn's dew arrives
