AUGUST 25 2010
I love the green that shimmers in the rain
The fall of drops that pelt my window pane,
The glow of reds and pinks
The gold, that streaks upon the grass.
I watch August leave behind
The summer days that now must pass.
For September shows before its time
The force of windswept leaves,
As beauty weeps and petals fall
The days steal by like thieves.
