End of Summer
By Mark Turbyfill
 
From “Journeys and Discoveries”

FOR that a great weariness has come upon me
Here in the remaining day of summer—
And the over-grown yard a stagnant mood,
Under the boughs the apples rotting,
And the fading grasses forgotten of cutting—        5
Suffer me to wag the tongue a little.
 
Even as leans on the fainting evening
                the foliage withering,
I am touched with a song of brown and of shadows,
And of colors lingering.        10
And I passed before a house of vines
To hear a myriad of birds therein
Crying, crying.
