As Summer Fades

As Summer fades

As Summer Fades
As Summer Fades

Autumn colours arrive

Dry, sunny days, now but a memory away

But on she goes, with September here

Gripping my world through her warm green eyes

Do not forget her when the first mists arise

Till she gives out her last breath and becomes no more alive

Thank you my darling for your long drawn-out days

Until next year, we must now say our goodbyes

    1. I know. I was wondering what I was writing after I did that post on the 10 things I hated most about summer but, I did as you said, closed my eyes and let the words flow, and this is what came out. It was hard work so I’m hoping it can only get easier.


  1. Love this poem, Hugh. I think you captured the feeling many of us summer-lovers feel when summer ends and the colder seasons are upon us. I hope you enjoyed summer and that it wasn’t too hot for you. It’s spring here in Melbourne but it still is quite chilly. I am looking forward to summer ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Thank you so much, Mabel. It was my very first attempt at a poem other than a haiku. This summer was too hot during July but August has been one of the coolest on record in some parts of the UK. My favourite season of Autumn is already showing signs of her presence and I’m looking forward to her putting on her wonderful colour display for all to see.


      1. First poetry attempt, I wouldn’t have guessed first attempt at all. Well done, Hugh. I hope we will be able to see more poetry from you soon here ๐Ÿ™‚ Go out and enjoy autumn, I am sure you will bring back a lot of photos for us to enjoy!


      1. Umm is it a he or a she? does the name start with a C or an R or an clue..who? But dont make this your last..I think you should try your hand at a couple more


      2. ๐Ÿ˜€ Yay! your Haikus were lovely Hugh..dont stop..let me rush and read whats up with the Grammer Black Market..just got the update in my inbox.


      1. Good for you! I do tend to stick to a certain style when having a go at poems (or verses really), but I have strayed from the trusted path on one or two occasions so might bite the bullet and go for it!
