When Winter Dies

Written by: Larry Belt

When Winter dies it's always sad
The clouds begin to cry
The flowers grow to let us know
That Winter has said goodbye

Winter held on as long as she could
But she caught that Spring disease
Try as she might she lost the fight
To make her subjects freeze

When all of her snow begins to melt
It's more than she can take
She begins to fear her time is near
As Mother Nature plans her wake

Summer and Fall begin to watch
For they share the very same fate
They're already there as both of them stare
As Winter's arrival is late

They bury her somewhere far away
Away from prying eyes
Today rejected she'll be resurrected
Once again to rule the skies
