Farewell Summer— Welcome Fall

As the sun is full of light, the ocean full of water; heaven full of glory. So may my heart be full of thee.
A Puritan Prayer
 Farewell Summer—Welcome Fall
 By Elece Hollis

Beside a country road,
I found a letter from summer there
You can’t miss it; it’s everywhere
Sweet and mellow
Singing her goodbye
Nodding—swaying in the wind
 Yellow notes of a fading song
Composed on the fragile sunlight and air,
Notice she leaves us
A note  behind wishing
Farewell to another summer
Welcome fall.
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You, 
and my soul, which You have redeemed
Psalm 71:23
