Changes

 Give comfort to shadows which color my heart
Let raindrops fall gently to nourish my thoughts
As one season arrives  and another departs

In a whirlwind of emotions I am now caught
As mother nature changes her mood
Let raindrops fall gently to nourish  my thoughts

My disposition changes as I sit and brood
wondering why summer must leave us so soon
As mother nature changes her mood

 Autumn unwraps itself like a butterfly from a cocoon
And then  its   beautiful leaves flutter away
And I keep wondering why summer leaves us so soon

The cool winds of  Autumn  will soon rule the day
And the brightly clothed trees will soon undress
And then  their  beautiful leaves will flutter away

In each season these trees will impress
 And give comfort to shadows  which color my heart
Soon  these brightly clothed trees  will slowly  undress
As one season arrives and another  departs

Joseph May

{"Give comfort to shadows which color my heart" is a line}

    This poem is stunning, on so many levels. Firstly, the topic.. writing about the changing of the seasons, especially the coming of autumn, is always a beautiful scene for me. Secondly, this Terzanelle is one of the best I've seen in this form! Your repeating lines are not just repeated, their meanings change silghtly, which is very hard to do! And the flow is beautiful. Lastly, you chose a line from my poem :) and I love that. I'm honored to see it here, in this beautiful poem. Favorite!
