and so, the going of the year
I’m tending fires prepared from Autumn leaves
and wistful souvenirs
and so the last September moon
smoldering to ashes
the Summer’s gone, the winds are coming soon

and so, the coming of the reap
I’m counting fires that maybe should have been
left out of the reckoning
how has it already been a year
plans and dreams we’ve made, just embers now
the smoke, it disappears

they say the song remains the same
everything else around has changed
only shades and empty shells
shadows of their former selves
yet, lest we turn the sun away
gather ye rosebuds while ye may
another dream decays, so long
another month and I’ll be gone


from Summer, Slowly, released August 21, 2020
