A Season's Dance

 Winter's dance was long and she moved very slow
                  She never held you tight,  she was always  so  cold
And when she shook her hair the dance floor would be covered  in snow
                   And then her icy stare would pierce you and she'd give you a frosty scold
 But though she seemed at times so  mean and undignified
                  The beauty of this lady could never  be denied
                 

  Spring's dance was lively, she let her hair down
             When she shook her hips there were blossoms all around
  She was warmer than her sister who  wore the  icy gown
            The melody of spring was a beautiful sound

  Summer was a party girl she danced to rock and roll
          She was  quite romantic and  loved those moonlit  strolls
 She loved the fragrant roses and her kiss was very warm
             Birds would sing when she appeared, enchanted by her charm
  When she shook her hair,  butterflies fluttered out
            And everyone on the dance floor would twist and shout

 Autumn was a beautiful girl
                She danced a little slower  as  round and round  we whirled
     She had a soul for rhythm and blues
                  And sad songs were her muse
 She would make  her leaves fall all over the dance floor
               We danced  all through the night until her leaves were no more
   Then her cold sister entered the ballroom with her chilly air of elegance
                  And I sauntered over to this icy beauty and once again we danced
 To all these lovely ladies I could never say goodbye
                  They will dance  forever   to  melodies upon a changing sky
                                                                 ~ ~        --
