Good-bye, Hello

Good-bye summer
Good-bye sleeping late and lemon scones
Good-bye long evening suppers and sweet iced tea
Good-bye late night movies and three on a couch
Good-bye brown skin and light dresses
Good-bye walks and talks to wee hours of morn
Good-bye hot nights and bug spray
Good-bye daydreaming and belly laughing
Good-bye summer.

Hello fall
Hello football games and dance classes
Hello well-planned meals and right-on-schedules
Hello old friend memories and new ones too
Hello competitions and out-of-town tourneys
Hello lazy Sundays and much-needed naps
Hello cool nights and warm sweaters
Hello stories galore and hearts full of love
Hello fall.
