Summer to Autumn Love Song

Give me time to see
The hours tenderly
As summer days are still showing
Whiles will go away
With the moods they play
But now the colors are glowing

Morn is new with light
Tender eyes so bright
Each hour is worth its beauty smile
Still comes in the night
Heaven’s evening flight
But we have this love for a while

Engaging daybreak
Awakening the lake
Like the sky in its azures blue
With tint of earths blend
To shadowed flowers bend
As the morning is coming through

Nothing is here to stay
Only life - its play!
With the gentle moment that glows
Beauty it has first
Songs of summer's thirst
That into dark evening goes

So much in its field
That to eyes is shield
With hours of silence to come
Days get misty still
Each long to dream fill
Like buds on a dim blossom

Autumn moods to sieve
Blanching colors give
As the moments to old shall dim
Songs of fall's yearning
Into shades burning
Meeting dark winter's frosty rim

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
