Summer's Last Day
The rain is sweeping the dust of summer away.
The earth is mourning this season's last day.
Autumn is due.
A tinge of color kisses the edges of trees,
The cool nights leave very few bees.
The finch's feathers change hue.
The dust of summer is being swept away.
The growing season knows its last day.
Sun's brightness will now begin to wane.
Next equinox the warmth will come again.
