So long knees
cooking on the beach.
So long sky.
When we come back next July
those trees will be a little taller.
So will I.
So long summer.
I can't believe it's already September, can you? I know that it is still officially summer for another 20 days or so, but I never think of it as summer once August is over. (Actually, as soon as school starts I consider it to be fall.)
I love this list poem by Karla Kuskin. There are so many wonderful things about summer, and it's time to start bidding them goodbye, at least until next year. Luckily, there are also several exciting things to look forward to as we say hello to autumn!
