The little songs of summer are all gone today.
The little insect instruments are all packed away:
The bumblebee's snare drum, the grasshopper's guitar,
The katydid's banjo, the cricket's violin,
The dragonfly's cello have ceased their merry din.
Oh, where is the orchestra? From harpist down to drummer
They've all disappeared with the passing of the summer.

Buying school supplies, textbooks, readers, and organizing my children's daily school schedule...sigh. Summer is coming to an end. And I feel rather purplish like this eggplant; sad to see summer passing, but I suppose all good things must come to end.
