The warmth of the late Summer sun I yet feel
Whispers of the changing season this day to reveal
Vibrant strokes of yellow upon birch tree leaves
Taken alight by this day's caressing breeze
A calm resolve, Summer's bloom hushed in fulfillment array
Trees, brush, fields of green, readied for the Fall parlay.
