Looking out the window as the summer fades away
watching as the farmer takes his last cutting of hay
the lambs of spring are nearly bigger than their moms
watching as the shadows stretch to close another day.
A myriad shades of green the hills
showing hints of tinted fall
ablush in salmon, red and pink
with lemon spattered over all.
The last short days of summer, hollyhocks in blooms
fields of golden rod display beneath a harvest moon
Crickets madly chirping as if
they know a frost comes soon.
