Sail Me Past Summer

coral verbena

 

Sail me past summer on coral-spun seas,

Scent me with harvest, on harvest-spun breeze;

Usher me crisp-leaved to autumnal days,

Wrap me in autumn with coral-crisp rays.

    So beautiful.
    Goes perfectly with the changes of seasons that we are starting to see & feel nowadays.
    Happy weekend Melody 🙂

    Been watching the green everywhere turning to a lighter shade 😦 I guess it’s inevitable …

  3. Oh how I will miss spring and summer.

      ME, too. 😦 I am setting it as my goal, though, to use my eyes to find the beautiful things in every day, every season. I might need reminding when the cold weather comes… 😉

    You have the prettiest colours in your poem and photo so hopefully that helps with the general dry Blech. It made me feel happy 🙂

    Bring it on. I am so tired of the heat and want my favourite season to start.

    Signs of Fall are all around me. And then I read this and I started thinking that we just seemed to turn the page from poems about winter and they will be back again in a blink. Time rushes by so these days. Oh the places your poems take me….

      🙂 Isn’t Time a strange thing? I feel as though it was a week ago that I was waiting for spring. I want to make sure I enjoy the signs of autumn, the unique beauty of this season.

  7. Melody, I enjoyed reading (more than once) your lovely autumnal offering!

    Blessings ~ Wendy
