As summer creeps on toward Autumn
And Spring’s first blushes begin to fade,
As if Old Man Winter had touched them
Long before he’d have his icy way,

It’s then I fear our mortality.
That we might not live another year
Is much closer to a certainty
Than a hope that any loving tear

Be shed on one’s behalf. Too many
Are shed in pain, anger, and sadness.
What if a thought sold for a penny,
Printed with no reader to address,

Composed with no musician in mind,
On a frame with no canvas? Be kind.

Beautifully written Mike, I love these last four lines !

I wasn't meaning to sound so critical, Sue. Thank you for your kindness. And Lucie, so much applause, you've made my heart swell with pride. Thanks.
