I match the mood of September in every way
We are both in transition and this metamorphosis we convey.
Remembering the youthful summer of our existence
We embrace the autumn without any resistance.
We can have the best of both worlds, so it seems.
A time of slow transition without any jolts of extremes.
On our journey from bright sunlight to cool shade
September and I are on a mutual crusade.
The journey is pleasant, even though a little melancholy and bittersweet
The passage is forward and inevitable; there can be no retreat.
My thoughts and feelings are culled by summer to store like grapes for a future wine.
Autumn will inherit these treasures to temper and to refine.
September and I will journey thru this change of season together;
The good times we will enjoy, and the storms we will weather.
