Summer Fades to Fall

by donnadiann

Leaves of gold and red
brown and yellow tossed in too

summer tiptoed out

Fall's rainy breeze wrapped 'round me;
hummingbirds left ruby glass.

Everything from summer is still in the yard--with 80's still forecast for next week, but fall dumped leaves all over my yard--so I watch as summer fades to fall. But today is nice and breezy with a touch of rain--my excuse to leave the yard work until later.
