Poets United - Vice Versa "Welcome, September" #13



Welcome, September

So long, dearest August,
with no despair we walk away
once again

welcome with open arms
the month of sapphires
and Forget-me-nots;

yet promise to plant a kiss
on your bloomin' check
come next year

and hope
you will not object
to our temporal fickleness.

This is for Poets United "Vice Versa #13".  The opposite words Object/Welcome & Despair/Hope.

Beautiful photograph, Margaret. And the words...oh, the words! I do mourn the end of August. Means to me summer is over, and I so LOVE summers. But to me, the message of your poem is that we must savor EACH month. Kiss August good-bye bur welcome September with open arms.

I grew up in the north with four seasons. We ALWASY greeted each season with excitement, only to be tired of the rain, the heat, the cold, the snow, etc by the end of each. :)
