The Grills of Summer
Well the color changes of the Aspens and the sounds of geese make me think summers days are numbered. Got to appreciate those barbecues and trips to the park while we can.
Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling.- William Wordsworth,
“The Wheel rolls more, and Autumn returns.
Cooler the rain; the Sun lower burns.
The coloring leaves presage the Year:
All things move into harvest’s sphere.
I vow to savor fruits first picked;
nor into grief shall I be tricked.
I vow to offer what once I spurned,
and face the Turning reassured. - Asleen O’Gaea, Celebrating the Seasons of Life: Beltane to Mabon,
