Hello September and Welcome new Month!
Hello September and Welcome new Month!! For summer there, bear in mind, is a loitering gossip, that only begins to talk of leaving when September rises to go. All your renown is like the summer flower that blooms and dies; because the sunny glow which brings it forth, soon slays with parching power.
The birds laugh loud and long together
When Fashion’s followers speed away
At the first cool breath of autumn weather.
Why, this is the time, cry the birds, to stay!
When the deep calm sea and the deep sky over
Both look their passion through sun-kissed space,
As a blue-eyed maid and her blue-eyed lover
Might each gaze into the other’s face.
The true beloveds of this world are in their lover’s eyes lilacs opening, ship lights, school bells, a landscape, remembered conversations, friends, a child’s Sunday, lost voices, one’s favorite suit, autumn and all seasons, memory, yes, it being the earth and water of existence, memory.
