Seasons Past

Gone are thoughts of autumn 
In December, cold and gray;
For this arctic air was not foretold
When that quiet fall was here;
Still I lay on a bed, cracked and stained      
Staring out at an evening star 
And waiting for winter’s passage 

Derelict remains the mysterious light 
While stars still flicker so,
And moonbeams shine to divide the night       
From the early signs of dawn, 
Feel the warmth in a grain of sand
That lay with winter snow 
Under the coming rains of spring

Slowly grows the trees new branch
Around the sap beneath the bow,
To embrace its mystic symmetry   
As the willows age;
Mankind is true for the sake of itself
Waiting the return of god
As summer slips away 

Silent bore the fallen leaves
In a brilliant color gold, 
And the sky did lose its mystery       
As the seasons ever change;
For what we hold of our life’s design 
Did part and now is gone 
From the autumn of our lives
