Farewell, Summer!

Dear Summer:
I am going to miss you when you leave. I know you must go, but you didn't stay long enough, and you didn't warm up to us at all, but we'll welcome you back next year anyway, and hope you'll make yourself at home then.

We will miss your blue, puffy cloud skies, your warm and gentle breezes, and your clear, cool nights. Until then, we will welcome your friend Fall and enjoy all of her charms. She is a good friend to you, wrapping up the package you left us, in full color for us to look at and savor after your warmth.

Please take care, I will look back upon you with fondness, especially when your distant cousin Winter arrives and blows her cold wind and leaves her icy trail for me to follow.

Summer was short, to say the least. I will miss it greatly.

I am SO gonna miss summer!
I don't like winter at all, I freeze to death until the summer thaw.
