Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield

Curved Corner

Indian Summer

Like a gaudy gypsy lady
     In the colorful attire-
Or a dancing living ember
     From a bright and open fire-

Comes the hazy Indian summer
     With her crisp and tangy air,
That strips the trees of beauty
     And leaves them bleak and bare.

Like an encore to a summer's play,
     She makes her final fling,
To leave behind the darken sky
     The waiting of the spring.

A reminder that the seasons,
     Like a constantly changing sphere,
Add spice and different flavor
     As they change throughout the year.

Each one forms a different pattern,
     With a landscape ever knew,
As they link themselves together,
     In their quarterly debut.
