Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

Good bye 90 degree weather
and late nights up reading.
Goodbye swimming pools 
and water fights.

Goodbye sweet fruits that are in season
and goodbye to iced coffee.

Goodbye summer afternoons spent swinging
and goodbye no-school work.

Goodbye bright colors of pink and white and green, 
and goodbye to going barefoot. You will be sorely missed.

Goodbye summer road trips
and goodbye to wading in the creek.

Goodbye iced-tea and summer nights listening to crickets chirping. 
Goodbye sweet nights on the porch playing music.


Goodbye summer sun and goodbye, warm nights. 
Goodbye giant sunflowers. 

Goodbye summer.
I'm so glad I've got memories of you.
Hello Autumn.
Hello pumpkin spice lattes 
Hello fuzzy socks and pretty scarves.
Hello cozy nights by the fire.
Hello fall baking. 

Welcome, Autumn! Come on in. 
You've been missed. 
It's so glad to have you back.
