Look. Quick! Before she disappears!
She’s flapping in the breeze, waving her farewell.
Didn’t she just rise up under the curve of that blue sky, wearing her welcome in tulips and lilacs?
And now, Earth tilts, and we keep spinning our orbit, and we remember all that Summer was. We grasp for a few bits of her warmth before we leave her on this side of the sun.
As for us?
We’re diving into summer a few more times before we altogether say goodbye.
So long, summer. We smile over you. For you’ve been good to us.
