Summer’s Last Gasp - Poem by Jim Milks

The summer sun moves across the sky in a gentle caress
A thousand flower petals dance in the air
Oh Fate! Thou art an evil mistress
Bringing into this peaceful place such despair

I try to gather them all in a desperate plea
As they slip through my trembling grasp
The petals scatter to the wind like worthless debris
as I sadly watch summers final gasp
