Tribute to the End of Summer

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

With the ending of summer today, or some may say it has left us already, I thought this song and poem were appropriate...enjoy!

 


 
Poem

THE END OF SUMMER

The summer days are fading, as they must
From endless hours to short and fleeting light
The bird's once bright, immortal tune, now cries
A melancholy aura to the dusk
The children fiercely climb, and dream, and race
Before their wild and unchained days depart
And yet beneath the zeal lies a half heart
For there isn't time, there's only enough space
The sun seems low, a hazy orange sphere
Now reminiscing sweetly of the days
When endlessly before you summer lay
And as in the deep, crimson dusk you stir
Your soul joins with the birds in wistful brood
Crying for lost summer days, for childhood

Hey Kristen, I love summer even here in south Florida. The water is warm and I love the beach. Soon the uncrowded beaches will be full of tourists and the water to cool for me to go in. At least we have a cloudless and snow less winter!
