Nature Poem about Earth’s Sun Cycle Seasons

It is nearly August. While spring in the northern hemisphere feels like a time to restore sunshine levels, late summer feels like a time to store up for the winter. Here’s a Folding Mirror poem with that theme:

Scandinavia 461

Preparing for Summer Departure, No Time for Laughter

Two days left of July
yesterday,
the sky seemed to cry.

August, the last summer month
northern,
does the sun think we’ve had enough.

September and October last
breaths,
warm winds keep winter at bay.

our star doesn’t really leave, it’s our planet’s circling weave

It’s the south’s turn to face
inwards,
Australasia and Africa tilt.

Our annual repetitive cycle space planetary gravity
journey,
365, and a quarter days.

Colourful leaves before snowy scenery
tomorrow,
six months before next spring.

Scandinavia 181
