Farewell to Summer

” ‘Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.”
–   Thomas Moore, The Last Rose of Summer, 1830

 

“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, September

 

Enjoy the last day of Summer!

    Summer was beautiful, but I welcome Fall. I look forward to walks in a cool crisp breeze and all the gold and crimson everywhere.
