I write what I feel…

Last Weeks of Summer



I know you are loath to go

And I am sad to say farewell,

Let us enjoy our last few weeks

Of sunshine days and balmy nights,

Mozzies with their itching bites,

Coolest clothing every day,

To move unhindered along our way.

Too soon, I feel a bite of ice

In the early morning air,

So pleasant now but, as time

Moves on, ‘twill change

Its nature from a nip to a gnash

Of its icy teeth to send us shivering,

Longing for the warmth so lately gone,

And we must wait through the long,

Cold months until you come again.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. I hope I catch a few weeks of late summer when I get back in March. Jo’burg should still be quite mild when I come up for our grandson’s Birthday. 😕 Lovely, nostalgic poem.


  2. If you’d stayed in Durbs you’d still have months of it to look forward to! 🙂


  3. While I, of course, am on the other end of the see-saw. 🙂


  4. From Brian Miller:

    soak it up….i am getting closer every day to warmer weather and i am stoked…ha….
    seasons change….we will soon wish we had relief from the heat….
    as not we wish we had some….smiles.


  5. I am, Brian, I am! I don’t mind this dry heat at all. Sorry your comment went to the previous post.


  6. “To everything turn, turn, turn,.. There is a season, turn, turn turn..” Or in other words… “What goes around, comes around”.. lol
