Leaving Summer

Season I Love

Summer is almost over

Over too soon

not enough warm days left

I hate goodbyes

When I was a child 

summers were long and lazy

school was out

play all day til

the streetlights came on

time to go home 

but more summer play

the next day

now I am older

I laze outside

with glass of wine

in hand 

trying to make each

day last

longer

never enough time

when you are 

older

goes too quickly 

wish it would last

 I still love 

summer

don't go yet not yet

stay please 

oh well there is Autumn

I love Autumn.
