Summer's gone

What Goes Around ...

Green marsh grasses turn to brown
as lazy days of summer wind on down
Lowcountry winter can't be far behind

Autumn colors quickly fade away
as shortened days give way to gloom
of subdued, dun colored miasma

Lay up frozen crabs, shrimp, and fish
for winter repasts on chilly nights
when oak logs flame in country fireplaces

They're not forever these winter doldrums
spring's warming breezes soon banish chill
a newborn sun kisses the face of a daffodil
