It's so much cooler
the excitement of it's gone
I used to know what to do
but now everything feels wrong
in the mist of changes
unpredictable day to day
what was possible a month ago
now seems so far away
even the animals sense it
as it draws nearer
their tensions increase
the desperation to hold on
as summer begins to cease
it's rained for many days now
I've thrown my hands up in despair
so many things long ridden
as the chill controls the air
it never does last long enough
for everything I once planned
for all those long lost days of summer
lay enclosed in mother nature's hands

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
