End of Summer

We need to light the candle earlier
now Summer is almost over
now our eyes are tired sooner
and the blackbirds
stopped there serenades.

Another Autumn is already waiting
around the corner of this month,
uninvited it will take over,
luring already through the orange lanterns
of the Physalis, grinning.

We need to make sure
we remember this Summer
and button up for what is to come.
If you take my hand I won’t be scared
for those dark days ahead. Just live on.

  1. Wonderful, I really like your poetry, and the feelings within them.

  2. You have summed up the end of summer up beautifully Ina; it definitely feels this way here. You never know, it may surprise us! 😊 L&H xx

  3. Lovely poem. Just right to get me in the mood for Autumn.

  4. What is ‘Physalis’? I know i can Google it but want to hear you. I don’t want to say goodbye to summer yet. Blackbirds and (their) serenades not heard here unhappily but there are other birds still around, not saying farewell yet, not yet. I am not ready for autumn or winter. Your poem hurries time too much although as beautiful as ever. Summer lingers around me…I embrace its presence…can’t let go…ever…

    • It is Autumn here now, can’t describe it any other way, but after the weekend, maybe Summer will return a bit so they promess … Physalis is a plant, with little white flowers in Summer, and orange lantern-shape thingies in Autumn. The neighbours across the street have them and they moved themselves miraculously into our front border a few years ago:) Maybe it is a weed, but it is a beautiful one! πŸ™‚

  5. This so perfectly captures the mood changing from summer to autumn and anticipating what is to come. Just lovely and I shared on FB. XO ❀
