The Summer is No Longer Alive

by Tove Jannson

Every year, the bright Scandinavian summer nights fade without anyone's noticing.
One evening in August, you have an errand outdoors,
and all of a sudden, it's pitch-black.
It is still summer, but the summer is no longer alive.

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
