Slipping Away

I watch the warm July days slide away:
See summer slipping down the calendar.
The sun will shine in August, I am sure;
Can only hope for same in fall's September.


October will have cold days with the warm.
November can be fretful and forlorn.
We'll have three months of winter then for sure
Before the gifts of March's spring are born.

Spring, Summer, Fall of my long life are gone.
Only cold Winter left to carry on.

Joyce~
You sing the seasons songs so well~

May your winters be short
and your poetic abundance continue to flourish~

Joyce,

I liked the structure of your poem and how you quickly went through the seasons...

I can only hope that summer will pass as fast. We've been having continual very very hot and humid three digit days here where I live in California and so I think this year I'm actually looking forward to the nice cold winter that you describe in your poem.

Enjoyed reading and God bless.

-Bob

Dear Joyce

A seasonal poem which you versed so well!  Our winter is almost over here in sunny Queensland.  The days are warming up, which I'm thankful for but we sure do need rain desperately.  We are in a drought!

Love Verbena xo

Dear Verbena,  Thanks for reading from around the world.  We have had a dry spell too but I know the fall rains will be starting soon.  We always have a nice Pacific breeze to keep it temperate.  Love, Joyce
