The weather is changing.  The days are cooler.  There is still a linger of summer, but a feeling that fall is around the corner.  I love the season changes.  I love weather.  I love fall weather to be more exact.  This summer was short, but the intense heat made up for it.  A lot can happen in a season.  Excited to start the next season of my life… 

  Change is good.

This is the first part of Percy Shelley’s poem, “Ode to the West Wind.”  I really love this poem, it’s a bout change and it so happens it is one of my favorite poems…

O, WILD West Wind, thou breath of Autumn’s being,

 
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead  
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing,  
Yellow, and black, and pale, and hectic red,  
Pestilence-stricken multitudes: O, thou,  
Who chariotest to their dark wintry bed  
The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low,  
Each like a corpse within its grave, until  
Thine azure sister of the spring shall blow  
Her clarion o’er the dreaming earth, and fill  
(Driving sweet buds like flocks to feed in air)  
With living hues and odours plain and hill:  
Wild Spirit, which art moving every where;  
Destroyer and preserver; hear, O, hear!
