Goodbye July (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

A pen, a paper;

And a tear down my eye.

A phrase, in a verse, in two words

Goodbye July…

I’ve written in your gentle winds;

As they carried my sails along inspiration stream,

With my words engraved in your mist

Bold in fine-print, my novelty in the scheme.

I have slept in your silence;

The greatest lullaby.

Yet hadn’t dreamed of awakening-

To a poem of goodbye.

Your sun is setting;

Frying in scarlet.

I’m bound to miss your cool-

When I’m scorched with ultraviolet!

I wouldn’t want you to leave;

But time instructs you must.

Farewell my old friend,

I ought to prepare for August…

If I live to see next year;

I hope to write you a happier verse.

I’ll work on that in January –

But now I have to write for August 1st!
