Ripening fields lush- bright with promise;

Her fading green glory on to riotous Autumn.”

Summer Quote:

” When summer opens,

and fear it will be short;
but after the heats of July and August,
I am reconciled, like one who has had his swing,
to the cool of autumn.”
– –   Ralph Waldo Emerson

Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city.”
