Farewell Summer for I Feel the Fall - A Sonnet
Chipmunks'n squirrels run a race
hoarding nuts at a tizzy pace.
hues ripen, pastels clip
slowly the mercury dips.
Birds retire to warmer places
autumn sombre-summer embraces.
a hot-cuppa coffee calls
unrelenting, mercury falls.
Daytime wanes as nights extend;
green to sleep, does orange send.
Bodies do to quilts commit
mercilessly, mercury plummets.
All puny pawns and puppets, acting but to nature's bid!
Questionable then is history's worth, that writes what MAN did!
