Stepping Off The Train

And so, September has arrived. I have said it before, but, the changing of these seasons..? Summer, she reminds me of a beautiful visitor from afar packing her bags to leave us after so many lovely months of carefree fun, laughter and dinner parties. We begged her to stay, but she has other duties elsewhere. She promises to return again next year, though a little older and wiser. 

September, he has already stepped off the train and is shaking hands with everyone, smart and serious in his tailored tweed suit.

"Goodbye Summer." We wave her off with tears in the corners of our eyes. Swallowing hard, we know we must do what we must, and so resolutely attend to the tasks at hand, with September offering his punctual and necessary attendance.

I am sure I'm not the only soul who feels this way. It does not get any easier as the years go by, does it?

Happy September to all the beautiful poetic souls who may stop here to shake hands with the man in the tweed suit, and to wave Summer off on her journey.

Hi Amy,

This is such a beautiful post, I love the image and your words just made me smile and think of the coming of jeweled coloured trees and the smell of open burning fires, crisp mornings and something simmering on the stove. I love your post so much I am going to post about it on my blog. Your words are wonderful and inspiring.

Thank you,

Oh, I am so glad it inspired you. Autumn is so full of inspiration, it is hard to gather it all before the frost slows everything to a sleepy winter. Enjoy creating, and thank you! ~Amy

Goodbye summer...what a lovely tribute to a friend from afar. Autumn is a wonderful guest, too, although Winter sometimes outstays his welcome. :)
