Cycles Of Life

The refrain of the little birds Breaks silence of the night Hours of bleakness is dispelled As on the horizon, the sun gives light The vivid green, soon gives way To a golden yellow leaf Just another reminder of autumn To hot summer days, it gives relief The lonesome sound of the katydid Ushers autumn to our door Magnificent colors will appear Painting beauty from mountain to shore Cycles, - appear in so many ways Various similitudes they enumerate The brevity of life is brought into view As on this fact, we meditate Mankind is but a vapor or a flower God's Word gives this metaphor We're here today and gone tomorrow Death is a stalking predator The picture is not one of gloom To those who have heeded His call A new beginning it affords Eternity ends the cycle for us all Colan L Hiatt = 08-01-15 © All Rights Reserved

Thanks Gwen, for responding. Because of your comment, I have been checking your material. "My Story," is special and "Do You Remember" reminds me of one I have posted on the site, titled "The Good Bad Times." (I look forward to reading more of your writings.)
