When Summer Dives Like Fools For Gold

762FDA58-705A-49DA-94E8-959BCA9DA557In heat as thick as brambles be
I say goodbye in deep July

When summer dives like fools for gold
with face in water crisp and cold
I say goodbye, and say it bold

Even as I’m saying hi
to sun so high, I say goodbye

Letting go while taking in
a way to stay awake again

With berries ripe as fat dog days
I say farewell, as they swell

with arms around the seering sun
and a tang on the tip of tongue
and the summer is yet young

I say so long, so long I say
Deep down in a summer day
