Solstice Saturday Poem Meme: Farewell and Hello

It is the summer's great last heat,


It is the fall's first chill: They meet.

Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt

As Summer bids farewell, puts on her sweater and kisses Autumn loving "Salut."on her way out the door, what are you saying farewell and hello to this season?

chilly morning that Fall arrived...

Farewell to: Stacks of novels to read, sundresses, going sock-less, sunblock, swimming in Grams pool, trying to grow bed lettuce and bottomless glasses of un-sweet lemon iced tea.

Hello to: Stacks of text books to read, Sweaters, jeans, Merrell boots (with long colorful socks), Milk and honey lotion, long hikes in fallen leaves, hot lentil soup for lunch and pots of rich-bold-coffee-with-honey or Earl Grey of course.

Happy Fall Solstice! How about you? What transitions do you begin to make as you reach for your comfy fall sweater?
