The air cools,
days become shorter,
the close of summer is near…
green leaves turn yellow
bird songs are mellow
before the autumn of the year.

A sadness descends
as summer ends,
and yet
the beach still beckons…

The ocean is warm,
the crowds are gone,
and trees show tints of red…
blue skies are bright,
the breeze is a delight,
and the loveliest weather
is just ahead.
