Summer has ended

Curtains have come down on summer
They are sweeping the harbour
Winds of change have blown in
as September takes charge

The stage is set
for the descent into winter
the first step is taken
one of many

The orchestra tunes up
Aeolius directs
the key does not matter
neither does major or minor

Green still dominates
but is muted by rain
the west wind paints
white crests on the waves

The sun will return
but sinking
lower and lower
in the midday sky

Orion is marching
his hounds at heel
through the night
in the southern sky
