THE SUMMER WIND

The summer wind whispers its muted message of goodbye

To the late lit leisure evenings and clear azure sky;

To the laughter in children's voices and the murmur of the sea

That linger in our quiet hours now the autumn wind blows free.

 

The summer wind was always warm against our smiling faces

Custodian of happy days and fond remembered places;

Of folk we knew and times we knew that held us in their thrall,

So many things that made life sweet, the summer wind recalls them all.

I can only say "thanks" for the kind words of appreciation.
The current sunny weather and its occasional breeze got me
thinking of the ephemeral nature of the warmer days of the
year and how the summer wind (called by various names
in different parts of the world) carries a message that urges
us to make the most of those days but ultimately says its
farewell as the seasons turn.

Wonderful! I really enjoyed this and by coincidence tonight here in Greece it is windy and as I'm reading your poem, I'm listening to the wind blow? Thank you!
