Summer’s End

Summer’s End

 

My walks in the park are now laboured

The dapples, more darker now too

~~

There is a chill in the air, I once savoured

~~

Saying goodbye to summer as late as it is

Is simply no fun without you

                    When your heart is closing down and feeling like turning in on itself, it's not a good time to see the world's plantlife closing down too. Roll on spring and recovery.

                      bang on sir ...

                        The end of summer, isolated and alone, with only darkening days to look forward to, can take the fun out of life. But, there's nothing like a good love song being created, to fill the time. Go for it.
                        You know what they say , " when you play Country Music backwards/"
                        You get your girl back, your dog back, your truck back, etc."
                        Keep smiling, it'll soon be Spring. - Phil A.

                          forgive my rudeness my friend, my mind read you words and got stuck - with your lines rearranged like this:
                          'My walks in the park are now laboured
                          There is a chill in the air, I once savoured
                          The dapples, more darker now too
                          Saying goodbye to summer, simply: without you'
                          wonderful write! (whatever way its read)

                          • Neville

                            .... I kinda like it when a poem does that to one of my peers .. particularly one whom I have a lot of time for and respect ...

                            so thank you L.B .. I like your version too by the way ... Oh' and get posting some more my friend .. I seem to have visited all of those you have placed here so far ..

                              thank you for not taking offense,
                              I post Fridays and Mondays usually, I lack the talent you all posses to produce works of such quality - at your levels of productivity, I'll post an extra one this week since you so kindly requested
