Fading Green (revisited)

5 of 10 in ‘The Autumn’ series from Jemverse

Although the leaves are on the turn
And some are falling from the trees
It is summer I am feeling still
With its warmth upon my knees

The cooler days and evenings
That autumn soon will bring
Isn’t lost on me today and yet
It is to summer that I cling

The beauty of the reds and golds
With the fading of the green
Is Mother Nature’s swan song
To the summer that has been
