Farewell the summer did you say?
So factually? Without a thought for they
Who love you?
Tell me you don’t mean to lose
All we all enjoyed.
Farewell to gown and books today,
Put pen and ink and me away?
The life of learning’s passion that
All we all enjoyed
Should the things that were us two
Fall into some void,
Abandoned empty skins of former lives?
I know a terminal urge grows
Within you now.
I must not need you
Till I don’t know how.
Farewell the vanguard of the day
My hand stumbles nervously on its way
Upon your brow,
Tell me you did not mean to lose
All we all enjoyed?
