SEASONS OF CHANGE

As the year marches relentlessly on
things around us quickly change
I love the start of each season 
A gift given to us all to enjoy

As I drive along in spring
its the promise of rebirth
all around are signs of new life
nests being built buds opening

Summer soon follows suit
bright fresh leaves adorn the trees
colourful flowers dip and bend
swaying gently in the breeze

Autumn so fruitful crops ready
harvest the spoils and store
safe ready for pickling and jams
earth's bounties freely shared

Ah most magical of all at Start
the icy fingers of winter reach out
hoar frost abounds on the trees    
fresh trails in the virgin snows

If asked I would have to say
for different reasons I love
the start of each and every one
always glad to see winter's end

    Of all the seasons winter is the most favorite to see end, though I don't mind winter as long as we don't get an absurd amount of snow, and especially not get much ice! I hate it when we have ice, as that is so dangerous! I really loved reading your amazing poem this morning! You have delighted me by the four seasons, a melody of sorts, very peaceful and calming! What a tremendous piece, Great Work!!

    I enjoyed this, Shadow. :D I was never much of a winter girl myself, but my four year old daughter is a snow-bunny! She loves snowmen, tobogganing and just watching the snow... so, I am 'almost' a convert. I'm so glad you enjoyed my sonnet for your last contest, and I'm pink-cheeked at my high placement... thanks so very much! I have yet to close my contest.. hope to do it Monday (we are packing, here, for a move to a small town close-by) Life <---hectic, harried and yet wonderful. Hugs Cyndi
