I used grammarly.com to check this because:

Though poetry is subjective,
Readers still spot misspelled words.
I would rather write it right
So I won't be corrected.  

End of Summer

Summer's waning,
But Daylight Saving Time
Still provides
Long evenings.

As August creeps along
And Labor Day approaches,
Children reluctantly
Return to their classrooms.

Beachgoers return home,
And settle in
For the chilly days
Of fall.

Work resumes
At a faster pace.
Multitasking sometimes
Causes waste.

Writers try to tell
Of the beauty
Seen in the changing
Of the leaves.

But no words
Can adequately describe
The pictures
God draws on the wall.
