Seasons

Spring bursts forth in glowing verdure,
The embodiment of a soul both playful and calm.
Grass and flower and tree uninjured
Weave with the wind a youthful tale of yore.






Summer pioneers its wild and steadfast freedom;
The sun is king and holds full sway.
The joy of many, the burden of some--
These are months 
wherein totality  comes.




Fall arrives, in stately anticipation. 
Color erupts, a fire of gold and red.
The air hurries you gladly to a joyful occasion,
To celebrate this cozy, friendly season.




Winter comes next, the oldest of seasons.
And though many bemoan its venerable snows,
There is eloquence in a hushed word unspoken,
And there is grace in a soul by pain unbroken.






Seasons pass, billowed and furled--
Joys come, sorrows go--
And though wars rage, and mountains into seas be hurled,
Still "God's in His Heaven; all's right with the world."

  4. I'm always late to the party, hehe. :-P I just had to add my two bits and say I loved it! I truly wondered at first if you were quoting it. :-) I'm glad you are posting your poems! And also, that last line fit so wonderfully, I loved how you used the Anne Shirley quote. *dreamy sigh* Oh, and those pictures are so beautiful!

It appears that you're about to leave a comment. I think you should know that if you do, I will giggle and smile and be delirious with joy, and then I'll stalk you to find out whether or not you have a blog *ahem*.

…All that's to say, please comment! :D
