Summer A Boon

Summer a boon

Before you go

A warm wind

A late sunset

A last flower

A blue sky

My mind distracted

By comfort

Instead of cold

Gene G. McLaughlin 2014 

When Summer Dies In The Mountains

When summer dies in the mountains

It dies fast

Like a flame in the snow or

The desertion of birds and leaves

All in a morning

Gene G. McLaughlin 2013
