Connecting With the Times

Location

Fall sun, morning cool; Relaxing days by the pool

Bare feet and cold drinks. All these things and you stop to reflect

What reason do I have to be upset?

 

            None in fact, if you really connect.

 

Shorter days, longer nights; Staying up late into moonlight

Crickets chirping, friends smiling. Good times aligning.

What  problems you face during this finish?

 

            Nothing much; they start to diminish.

 

Time at school, learning much; Meeting friends to keep in touch

Bonfire weather, laughs and joy; No hot sun or rain to annoy

All the time spent with love?

 

            Relish the time, as peaceful as doves.

 

Great grades, pride and delight; Enjoying youth in its prime

Walks in parks, watching waves; Watching leaves as seasons change

The summer heat far gone and past

 

            Collect memories, as the seasons last

 

Family and friends, time well spent; Amusement and glee without relent

Study and play, night and day; All these things and you stop to reflect

What reason do I have to be upset?

 

            None in fact, if you really connect.
