It happened so quickly.
Yesterday was a balmy August day.
Up until then, I thought summer was going to stay forever.

It's as if someone found a giant thermostat in the sky and turned it to the setting: just chilly enough for a sweater.
Is it the season change that draws me back to layer my naked arms in warmth,
or something else?

It happened so quickly.
Yesterday was a baby toting, PTA Mom day.
Up until yesterday, I thought they were going to stay small forever.

Wrap me up tight cosy sweater,
this change is going to take some getting used to.
