We experience the end of summer as a crisis.

On their last day of school, children look at the months of freedom before them, and it seems as if summer may last forever. By the time they realize the days are getting shorter, it is too late -- the dread of returning to school overshadows any frantic attempts they may make at last-minute fun.

As adults we are no less distraught (since none of us know how many more summers we will see), and we vainly try to bargain with Nature for a few more weeks of warmth and beauty.
