good riddance

we're making the switch.
that seasonal one.
mother nature has of late
been gracing me with such surprises
and instilling within me
such hope
that i've gone out on a limb.
i've wiped all those winter boots clean,
tucked them in bags,
and stored them clean away.
i've with gladness
put all those animal skins
in a high closet beyond reach,
until they once again become necessary
for survival.
i've folded up those scarves,
those gloves and mittens
and said goodbye
and good riddance
for many months.
and i even discovered
those cute lavender gloves
i (just had to have, but)
forgot to ever wear.
how could i?

until next year, my friends.
