    The Day that Summer Died
    by Vernon Scannell

    From all around the mourners came
    The day that Summer died
    From hill and valley, field and wood
    And lake and mountainside.

    They did not come in funeral black
    But every mourner chose
    Gorgeous colours or soft shades
    Of russet, yellow, rose.

    Horse chestnut, oak and sycamore
    Wore robes of gold and red,
    The rowan sported scarlet beads
    No bitter tears were shed.

    Although at dusk the mourners heard,
    As a small wind softly sighed
    A touch of sadness in the air,
    The day that Summer died.

    What a very descriptive poem - I ought to read more from that writer.

    "A family tree can wither if nobody tends it's roots"
