I love the way
The tattered clouds
Go wind across the sky

As summer goes
And leave me
With a tear in my eye

I'm taking out my winter clothes
My garden knows what's wrong
The petals of my favorite rose
Be in the shadows dark and long

Through every year
It's very clear
I should be used
To carrying on
But I can't be found
IN the garden
Singing this song

When the last
Rose of summer is gone

Hi Alex: I am not a poet, but this is the essence, sort of:

Me gusta la forma en que las nubes desgarradas
se mueven por el cielo
Según el verano se va y me deja
Con una lágrima en el ojo

estoy sacando mi ropa de invierno
Mi jardín sabe lo que pasa
Los pétalos de mi rosa favorita
Estarán en la sombra oscura y larga

Aunque cada año está muy claro
que debería estar acostumbrado
a seguir
Pero se me puede encontrar en el jardín
Cantando esta canción
Cuando la última rosa de verano se haya ido
