FADING BEAUTY ...

 
SUMMER is fading AWAY ...
 
The SUN shining lower and LOWER each day
on the horizon ...
The temperature SKIRTED the FROST line last NIGHT ...
Some ANNUAL flowers are getting BREATHLESS
while some OTHERS are getting HIGH
on September weather...
 
The SKY is bluer than
my GRAND-MAMAN Gabrielle's EYES were
and there is an old ANCIENT perfume
lingering in the air,
reminiscent of CHURCH incense ...
 
TODAY's got a MIDDLE-AGE flair ... 
A VICTORIAN je-ne-sais-QUOI ....
 
TODAY's got one FOOT in AUTUMN
while the other is still STANDING firm
in WARMER months GONE by ...
