Our Summer is almost gone,

and with the winds of change, in the air,

The green beauty of heavily laden limbs,

shading all that's there.



Breezes persist to bring a new hope,

in colors of an Autumn, so rare,

The leaves to sense a recompense,

a bouquet of the rainbow's flair.



Then, we to find our garbs of change,

to wear in the chill of the days,

As we watch squirrels playfully chase,

in trees, all, a picture of grace.



Autumn is coming, and with not a plan,

of what we should all conceive,

A time to prepare, of new life to spare,

a considering, in what we believe.



The times realized are not quite the same,

that do linger, before our gaze,

Spoken of old, full of wonders, untold,

and those were the best in our days.



As Summer goes by, brings tears to the eye,

all to miss its sweetness, so fair,

The Fall of our lives, somehow deprives,

our free spirits, without any care.



Then to come.as a Winter's drum,

a beating of the coldness and with its snows,

How far we've trod, each, upon this sod,

and in every heart each, all so knows.



Is our life to be lived here in vain,

the suffering masses, undergoing such pain,

Would tomorrow then break upon a new day,

in our dismay, and all's disdain?



The scent of the apples, and grapes are ripe,

can Autumn's signs, be so near,

In Summer's passing, a regret, resigned to worry and fret,

and all to live a life of fear?



It's now we should act, with our intellects, intact,

preparing for the worst and in our best,

Our futures can be bright, in the dark of night,

with the spirits, in which we all, are so blessed.

What message do you receive from this work and can you see a dual meaning in its words?

It would appear to this simple mind that this is not necessarily about Autumn and the end of Summer. Beautifully written...prepare for the worst....indeed, and it is yet to come. I am always prepared for the worst while I embrace all of the gifts I have been given.

Wonderful hub!

Thanks, oh he, of the simple mind, my friend Bill. So simple, yet your mind expresses the depths to which a soul may reach in goodness and sharing. In my humble opinion, not so simple, is the wonders of your mind, my pal.

It really is sad that summer is on it's way off... Especially here in the UK where we haven't really had a summer, our hottest day of the year was last week. And this week has seen the weeks highest rainfall.

Weather confuses me

Yes, I can see the dual meaning, as it is also about life. Autumn can be the most peaceful and beautiful season of all.

Thank you MsDora and Kathyjones1952@at, for your nice response to my work about Summer. The changing seasons of the years are so much like the changing times in our own lives, from youth and vigor, to a more sedate and peaceful life of acceptance.

Your photo journey led me through the season. Good job in design. I think we are almost through summer now, but I do love the fall season best. "The scent of the apples and grapes are ripe", really makes me smile.

Thanks teaches, I've mixed emotions about the passing of Summer and the coming Fall season. As a former teacher, I was always on the ready come August, and getting ready for the new year coming on.
