According to the calendar, the fall season has officially started. While we can still look forward to wonderfully warm days over the next few weeks, the end of summer weather will certainly be here before long. Author Rowena Bastin Bennett has a very poetic way of describing “The End of Summer”.
“The little summer songs are all gone today. The little insect instruments are all put away.
The drone’s snare, the grasshopper’s guitar; Katydid’s castanets– I wonder where they are.
The banjo of the bull frog, the violin of the cricket. the dragonfly’s cello has ceased its merry din.
Oh, where’s the orchestra, from harpist to drummer? They all disappeared over the summer.
