Autumn Night Music

Autumn Night Music

Summer is waning;
nights are gaining.
Evening trees have lost their song.
Katydids, the last to strum,
are packing up and moving on.

Music lovers, don't despair!
Autumn tunes are in the air.
Just tonight I heard a breeze
practicing inside the trees.

There is music after summer
with a different kind of strummer!

~ Constance Levy

I love the images (and the rhymes!) in this poem.  Days are getting shorter, we've said goodbye to summer, but there will still be music and beauty to enjoy now and in the months to come -- it's just a different kind of music and beauty than what summer brings....
