Summer's Lease

September sighs
A cooler breath
And summer's verdure dims,



September shifts
Drowsy, relaxed,
Like insect-laced leaves
Languid on limbs



Summer's grip eases
Releases early gems
To gleam on paths


To glow in clear pools
Of the Faerie Spring

To blanket secret woods
Where sleepy spells drift
and sway between the shadows

September shrills
With crickets' farewell to
Steamy nights


Summer stills
In September,
The Faerie Spring
Is almost dry
September sways
And sweeps summer's
Harvest

From branch to
Forest floor






To become Spring's
Promise
