The Last of July


One July Summer

What has happened to summer,
That's what I want to know.
Is she on a vacation -
Who knows where did she go?
Tell, what was she wearing;
A zephyr breeze and rosebud
Or grass and wild berry?
Could she be honeymooning
With spring or early fall
Or has she gone so far away
She'll not return at all?

I like to think of summer honeymooning with Spring or Fall, though they say "Opposites attract" - may be she's messing around with Old Man Winter.

Thank you for the poem. I can use it.
