Summer Daze

Summer is fleeting

And so are the tourists

The sun will soon be farther away


Nights will get chilly

and school will have started

Long gone will be hot summer days


Put the bedspread back on

Plug the blanket back in

Make it comfy where I lay


I get drunk on the very thought of you

Stop looking at me the way you do and

Please, please, have your way

    Summer is brief but the glory of Autumn (my favourite time of the year) will soon be upon us.

          Frightening isn't it.. autumn will soon be upon us and you introduce that reality in such a poetic way...

          Your last stanza is very inviting too... I imagine there is a very lucky fella blushing somewhere....


          • Christina8

            Well, it does stink that summer is almost gone.....The cold nights are very inviting though. Thanks so much for your fine review!! Christina

              This one kind of outlines the feelings Iโ€™ve been having. My anxiety has been slowly rising as college once again begins for me. Another amazing poem though, you keep on writing and Iโ€™ll keep on reading!

              • Christina8

                Amazing? I really appreciate that as I felt as it was barely worth typing out. I really thank you for your support. Thanks for reading and the kind reply!!--Christina

                Is he the blanket, the warmth you seek

                • Christina8

                  uh, I hadn't really thought of that, I just thought of the cold nights and what fun they'd be. Thanks for the read and the kind reply!--Christina

                • dusk arising
