On This Labor Day, 2014, I Bring About a Salute to The Summer That is Soon to Open Into a Wondrous Autumn

 

Summer

 

The seasons of change

Bring about a symphony

A lengthening of the shadows

Brings about a quickening

Of the heart.

 

Summer!

The wonder of it all.

Bursting forth,

 

The treasures that lay hidden

Escape their cooler encumbrances

To glory in the miracle

Of the celebration of life.
