Itโ€™s officially Autumn (Summer Adieu)

BTW A happy belated birthday to Stephen King, the king of horror. ๐Ÿ‘‘ Yesterday (September 21st) he turned 75 years young. Hereโ€™s to many more. ๐Ÿฅ‚

I was going to post 75 candle emojiโ€™s but my finger started cramping. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Without further adieu, let us recognize this, the first day of fall, with an aging poetic piece.

Summer Adieu

Itโ€™s out of the flip-flops and back in the Reeboks

and long pants dug out of the dust 

So long to the tank tops, bikinis and cut offs 

and lawn chairs left lying to rust

Adieu to the sand dune, the pelican and plain loon

My loves, weโ€™ll see you `fore long 

Leaves drop as trees swoon, long past the crop moon 

With the scent of a sweet autumn song

Letโ€™s all take a big swill to ward off the night chill

Winterโ€™s a season away 

Crank up the camp fire; avoid the ole quagmire 

With children perched high on the hay 

Poem from Getting Me Back
