March 1 is the first day of autumn in the southern hemisphere.

On the last day of summer

Farewell, days of summer
Your sweat stains remain;
And the fading tan lines
Blend into a chalky frame.
Let's point to autumn leaves
To hide the pale underneath
Folds of warmer sleeves.
Maybe our winter hibernation
Shall blossom into sparkly spring.

This is so filled with the images of a southern hemisphere autumn. We also follow the pattern of the southern hemisphere and it's time to buy school clothes for children as they run with the excitement of school starting again and we mourn the end of summer. Your writing is beautiful.

I love summer and we are just heading into Spring:)
Really nice work which says it all:)
