This is my entry for KaylaAnn’s End of Summer Poetry Contest.  I hope you enjoy  🙂  Info for the contest can be found HERE

The fire burned, ever so slowly
We watched, as flames grew high

Each stick thrown into the pile
Seemed to let out a hideous cry

As the fiery mass engulfed it
Soon turned it to soot and ash

Then a chill in the air sent a shiver
A reminder, that summer had passed

Sadly, she was making her exit
All we had were memories to pack

Autumn made herself be known
Now, all we could do was look back

To the warmth of the sunlit days
And oh, how the nights did sizzle

Cooler breezes now come this way
As we watched the firelight fizzle
