The end of Summer is near
Just two weeks more.
I shed a silent tear
Realizing my summer is almost gone.

The warm August days
Slip by so fast.
Oh, how I wish
I could make them last.

And as each day
Ends in a golden sunset
I wish it would stay
Summer, just a bit longer

So I wave a silent goodbye
To my sweet summer so dear
And I watch and cry
As the sun goes down
On the last day

Of Summer…

This summer has been the best. I will never forget it. But i am sad to see it go, no matter how much I love Autumn, nothing can compare to the magic of Summer...

Hey!
If I recall correctly, you're the one who wrote the other lovely poem on summer. Just like in "Summer," I love your sublte, well placed rhymes, natural and human. I felt as if someone were sitting with me, and we were both wistfully regretting summers end. Even in December, this poem feels ecellent and relevant! Write on, DawnieRae!

Though I dislike summer, this poem reminded me of my young childhood and how once summer had been beautiful. This was a spectacular poem that made me feel the warm glow of nostalgia carry through my body.

I'm with Krasota on this poem. I feel the emotion, but I think you should tell me why this was the best summer ever. I feel like you're trying to unravel it for us. But you need to go bare it for us. Otherwise, a good poem.

Nice rhyme! My suggestion is to use more metaphors/similes in your poem. Otherwise, awesome job! :P
