I am sorry to see the long Summer days leaving us.

Now what will follow is something I shudder to think, ‘WINTER’.I can see cold hard winter days in my future. I’ll no longer see the lush green lawns,colorful flowers, birds of all variety adorning my patio.

It will be replaced by mountains of snow,slippery streets,bare trees,snowstorms, People clothed from head to foot in huge parkas to protect themselves from cold wind.We’ll be busy buying hat,coat,gloves and scarves. What is worse is the transportation,the cars will have to be equipped with winter tires.Driving will be a chore.

The most inconvenient thing we have to face is the snow plows dumping hard rock- like snow in front of our driveway. I’ll have to stay home most days,I am terrified of falling on the ice.

I wish I could convince ‘Summer’ to stay longer. It is something I cannot hope. Changing of seasons is a natural phenomenon. I will have to be satisfied thinking, ‘Summer’ will come again, I have to be patient!
