The Seasons

Summer 2012 092

She was a real beauty

a flower just beginning to blossom

and when she was at her best

he took her for a dance

Spring in all of her loveliness

truly delighted him

Summer was enchanted

by all that she had done

and they flitted and danced

all through their seasons

and life was so good

under the warm summer sun

soon Autumn began to eye Summer

and she was unhappy

that he paid her no mind

but soon that would change

Spring became sadder

and soon faded away

when that happened Autumn

took Summer by the hand

he was entranced by her colorfulness

and didn’t seem to mind losing Spring

but he let himself forget

as September drew to a close

and soon he realized that he’d been tricked

and Autumn took over

when Summer was no more

she knew that soon

she and Winter would have a fling

it was their time

to dance and sing

with cold winds blowing

and leaves twirling

the excitement of first snow flakes

as Spring slept in her beauty

and Summer dreamed of when they would be together

once Autumn and Winter

finished their season of love

and the cold north winds stopped blowing

it would be then that Winter would awaken Spring

and the spring breezes would melt Winter away

  1. They come and they go and pay us no attention. All have their beauty though.
