Summer Wind

The summer wind came blowin' in from across the sea ...
                                                              --Johnny Mercer

This August in the Shire has been unusual 
in that there have been few days with temperatures in the 90s and 100s.
The milder temperatures have made it easier to take care of my flowers,
but it seems odd that we've had fewer "dog days" than normal.

And today, the wind has blown and blown.
Leaves and pine needles have been hastened from the trees
and scattered to the four corners.
Summer wind, bringing with it what may come.
