"Be who you are & say what you feel. Those who mind, don't matter. Those who matter, don't mind."
~ Dr. Seuss

Flowers cry
Of a summer fast flown by
They shrivel and fall
And my heart frowns
Like grasses changing from greens to browns
An ever changing ball

Flowing, brings
And bubbling, sings
The cool river
Then the nights grow long
I know, and I long
For the moonbeams like silver

And I stand and sway
With the songs that light
My every path
Everywhere they sound
I leap and bound
Like a child down a footpath

This one was a little harder to write than my Ode but in the end it turned out pretty good =)
