Goodbye Summer .....

  Although the seasonal change is mild on Maui, if you live here long enough, it can feel  monumental.  As summer slides into fall, the days grow shorter, the air slightly cools and at night, it is down right cold.  I long for it all summer and today it is here..... I celebrate the season called, Autumn!  
"SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
        Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless"...

"With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
    To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
        And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
            To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells"...

"With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
        And still more, later flowers for the bees,
        Until they think warm days will never cease" .... John Keats
