Summer is winding down:
Evening comes sooner;
Preparations for winter happen in earnest;
Teachers and students are back at the ol’ grind!
Everybody knows that
Months will be colder for a while;
Blizzards and rainstorms will brew,
Enveloping the world in white blankets,
Running over into streets.
Soon enough, however,
Everything will start to awaken,
Perfuming the air,
Touching the ground with warmth,
Easing miserable cold.
march wind and spring rain will
Bring fresh hope and delight;
Ever moving closer to
Return of summer.
