My discomfort of another winter

Photo by Barry Wallace ~ 2004
Summer ends in four days
I want it to creep into fall for a week
And then another week
And then another week
I hope that autumn's colours
Penetrate far into December
Then I will hear a knock at the door 
I will open it and ask may I help you
The wind will sigh and say snow is nigh
I will shut the door and go to bed 
For a hundred days
I will begin to exist again on April Fools Day
Look up to the sky and say to the sun
Welcome back warm friend

Please comment if you wish.
