Restoration
by Elizabeth S.M. Ward

The flowers that gave us vibrant colours in the sun
The leaves that danced in the gentle evening breeze
The birds that sang us their sweet early morning song
Have left us ...
Now that Summer's gone

The children who played so happily in the sand
Calling on imagination to build their never-never land
Who in one short span grew remarkably tall and strong
Are back in school ...
Now that Summer's gone

As we prepare for the changes a new season will bring
We know that following a long Winter we can welcome Spring
Then we'll have a kaleidoscope of colour before very long
For Summer sleeps to regain strength ...
She has not really gone!
