Sunset eulogy

Hopeless yellow blooms
On the watermelon vine
Promise wee melons

Never to ripen
Displaced by jack-o-lanterns
Grinning in the rime

Dusk creeps like frostbite
Summer's gone.  Weep if you must.
But, friend, summer's gone

Rare, vivid palette
Of evening's call to glory
Sunset eulogy

hiya..just wanted to let you know, the so called fictional characters named Carriaga in a number of Steinbeck's novels..not fictional..Steinbeck indeed knew the Carriaga family (Sylvestre and family).. something to be proud of.
now..let's rock the streets and make John proud again!
