and it means that summer is drawing to a close. Late
summer has always reminded me of a woman ready to
give birth, beautiful, heavy and ripe. Autumn is just
around the corner and September has just stepped
through the door!
"Lord, it is time. The summer was very big. Lay thy shadow on the sundials, and on the meadows let the winds go loose. Command the last fruits that they shall be full; give them another two more southerly days, press them on to fulfillment and drive the last sweetness into the heavenly wine." - Rainer Maria Rilke
