Seasons

Seasons flow by
Like so many dead leaves
Blown by the wind
Gone forever

Spring- birth, new life
The earth is green
And fertile
Life begins

Summer- hot and sunny
Trees and flowers
In verdant bloom
The prime of life

Autumn- harvest-time
The collection of all
That is good and bountiful
Brilliant leaves falling

Winter- the cold dark times
Sleep and death for
Plants and animals alike
Snow paints the world white

New beginnings everywhere
Snow erases all mistakes
Makes everything beautiful, and
New, ready to accept new life
