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.
