Indian Summer

the lazy bones yearn,
late summers refuse to move
winter knocks on door.


( An Indian summer is a heat wave that occurs in the autumn. It refers to a period of considerably above-normal temperatures, accompanied by dry and hazy conditions, usually after there has been a killing frost. )
