Nature's Surrender

Written by: Gail Angel Doyle

~Nature’s Surrender~ Autumn leaves of faded gold Finally given in to the fight of surviving old Worn by a winter’s sting with its cold chill The leaves surrender to be killed~ Raindrops known for their clear reflections Will eventually take on a new direction To give way to a birth of a new fallen snow Surrendering to stop traces of their translucent glow~ Snowflakes that dance of pure white Will soon fade to translucent silhouettes in sight Melting their shapes into spring’s canvas to come alive The snowflakes soon will surrender falling from the sky~ Everything in nature’s surrender Exists to allow a season to exhibit their richest splendor Thus after each season comes to an end We will surrender to their beauty once again~
