Hello, Goodbye

Hello Rainclouds

Hello to grey rain clouds; goodbye to peachy sunshine.
Hello to warm pots of cinnamon spiked tea; goodbye to tea steeped in a sunbeam.
Hello to cozy cashmere wrapped up to my chin; goodbye to cotton sundresses.

Goodbye Summer

Hello to squeaky rain boots; goodbye to airy sandals.
Hello to steamy soups of lentils and squash and apples and spice; goodbye to salads of snap peas and herbs and nectarines and strawberries.
Hello to crisp air sneaking through my window panes; goodbye to rays of light streaking across my old creaky floor.

Hello Autumn; goodbye Summer.  Until next year.
