At Summer's End
by Joseph Vega

At the end of our fortieth summer
we will travel to the woods

and seek familiar paths to our old friends
the elms standing stoically in the last light.

Rivers must be trickling streams at summers end
and darkness must usher us back,

for summerwoods can offer no solace —
it too is fleeting with the coming of autumn.
