A Season's Dance

Stretching long, without goodbye Weary from the summer's play The rolling hills are losing green But laughing to a cloud flecked sky while catching autumn's leaves ~ Autumn days show quiet grace A fading trace of yesterday... We watch a sky yield a change of hue Turning gray from shades of blue But there is now a harvest moon Dancing to a different tune For, winter's coming soon ~ After trees have lost their hue Let the wind bring seasons new I'll smile upon the pillowed earth that brings a sense of peace instead.... A winter spread of snowy mounds A softer sound upon the ground as snowflakes waltz around ~ Until the birds return again, I'll watch the dance of green begin I'll brush the blossoms off my head then,... dance because it's spring !

    And then lets rake them all in a big pile and jump in it, roll around and throw leaves on each other, throw a few logs on and have a weeny roast!...'I'll smile upon the pillowed earth?' How the heck did you come up with THAT? You never cease to amaze...
