Summer's End {an oufit & poem}

Well, if you haven't noticed, Summer has left us. She has packed her bags and traveled to another country. Yes, I was so sad to see her leave, but she brought a new friend with her! Autumn is her name. This outfit was my last attempt to keep Summer from going, but alas, Autumn brought the chilly breeze. Below is a poem I wrote...

Summer, my friend, where are you going?
Was it something I said?
Don't you remember the things we did? 
The smell of flowers in our noses,
the sweltering heat
and sand in our toes?

Summer, dear Summer, why won't you stay?
Do you really have to pack your bags
and go away?
Why, who is this?
Your friend, Autumn, you say?
She seems nice,
I'm not so sure about her, though...
She smells like cinnamon and pumpkin spice,
aromas that tickle my nose.

Nice to meet you, Autumn.
How do you do?
What's that, you want to play?
Climb trees, eat apples
and jump in a pile of leaves?

Thank you Summer, for introducing me to your friend.
We're having lots of fun!
Wearing sweaters and scarves,
sitting on benches
and running through parks.

Well, Summer, I think I'll be fine...
I will pass the time with this new friend of mine. 
Autumn holds my hand as I cry and wave "good-bye!"
Part of me is still sad to see you go...
Oh, how I will miss you so!
But I'm glad I won't be alone
as I wait for your return.
Summer, you will always be in my heart! 

I have come to terms with the leaving of Summer and welcomed Autumn with open arms. It will be full-blown Fall posts from here on out!
 With Love,


  1. Where did you get the shirt and shoes? I love this outfit!!! :D


  2. Hello Sam!
    Well, the shirt was from a friend, but I think she got it from Target. The shoes I bought from shoe carnival in New Jersey. They were a $60 pair of shoes on sale for $15! I couldn't pass that up! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. Acceptance of change is challenging. Your literary portrayal of the lesson that this transition taught you is so graceful, my friend! And as always, lovely outfit :)

    1. I think you could have done a better job, you are so wonderful with words! I kept racking my brain on the last line of the poem, because it didn't rhyme... but it was true! Anyways, thank you dear!
