shoulder seasons

spring is lovely,
with its sudden showers
and the pleasure of
lengthening days

but as it
pulls me
toward summer

already
i long
for autumn

when heat
and long
days gently
linger
and evening
chills begin
to fall

when my pace
slows down
after so
many miles
traveled

and there is
rest, and calm,
and you, close.
