Oh, blessed Spring I have been waiting for you it seems forever,
Let me throw off this winter coat and put on my raincoat and galoshes;
I love your blue skies and even rain showers that clean the earth,
Delightful spring flowers are sprouting, the Violets and Tulips are lovely;
Everything is awakening, baby birds are chirping and baby squirrels are scampering.
Oh, beautiful Summer, I have planted seeds in my rainbow garden,
I have my sandals, sundresses in pretty colors and picnic basket ready;
On forest hikes I will go, to the breezy beach and leisurely walks in the park,
When days are sun-drenched hot, I will find a shade tree to rest and ponder;
I love even your thunderstorms and showers that make the earth flourish and grow.
Oh, Autumn, I adore your changing foliage, the falling leaves and coolness,
A crackling fireplace on a breezy fall evening, dreams of pumpkin pie;
Halloween and all the kids, Thanksgiving turkey with stuffing and apple cider,
After, we will rake the multi-colored leaves, crisp and tattered, and divine;
Everything is turning, changing, soon animals and me will be hibernating in warmth.
Oh, Winter, my beloved, I love you the most of all, we are linked in spirit,
I was born in a winter snowstorm, it was bitter cold, the day pure with snow;
Your brisk cold breath is so frosty, your delicate lacy snowflakes are a delight,
Christmas trees and Christmas Day, snowmen and gingerbread men cheerful;
Yes, I know you have a temper and can get quite gusty and nippy, and gosh,
