Farewell Summer


Still now. Almost too still.
Storm brewing south of us.
Fewer tourists than normal
for a Labor Day weekend.
Throngs no doubt deterred by
the impending tropical storm,
and the notice of cancelled
ferries to the Islands.
Summer season preparing
to be ushered out on a gust of wind.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
