The Seasons

Spring A refresh of rain, falling down on them all Un-quenching each leaf with tilt refrain Linden shaped blossoms in spring do install Such beautiful heaven that no one can maim The burst of an orange, a tulip in bloom Infusion of flowers, by meadow's festoon The shine of an orchid, ever so stark, It stays on my mind, long after dark The Rose brings her beauty, as I swift appraise And summer goes trailing with fever, her blaze Summer Heat waves arrive, wearing red flaming scarves Bronzed cherub angels, by cool fountain spout Yellow kissed flowers by summer's head count The dahlias in love, with passions, don't starve Bikinis and tank tops with summer tanned legs Atop the hot board walk, skip trampling keds Bleach blonds and ravens in tune with the fair Coasters and bolsters and times without care It's all in the season of sunshine and thrills Where fireworks burst, o'er emerald hills! Autumn The seasons pass as my eyes behold Soft change in hues when bending limbs grow bare As colored leaves turn brown begin to fold To finally scatter into Autumn's air These days remembered on a road of leaves Traveling aspen groves ablaze in gold A Winter's chill before the Autumn grieves Reminds that all life ends before its cold And calls in voice its yearly subtle dance As songs from birds now give a quiet note While those in love hope colors will enhance To feel chill from Winter when color dies To bless the fallen leaves with sadder eyes Winter The Winter's cold comes dressed in velvet white And spills its unique flakes upon the Earth Scenes of beauty calm, open eye's delight And cleanse the ground before the Spring's rebirth I'll walk upon the freshest fallen snow And see the trail of prints I leave behind While knowing it reveals the path I go I'll make a snowy Angel some will find To cross the banks of white where depth is low And sit among the quiet, Winter's brought To see the landscape clean with softest glow Shall bring to me another gentle thought I'll lift my eyes to find a pictured scene And marvel at the white that is pristine written by Mystic Rose & Frederic Parker 9/20/14

frederic, I can see you put a lot of work into this set. How wonderful to do all four seasons as a sonnet. I have done all the seasons now in sonnets, but I have never thought to put them together and see if they complimented each other that way! Great idea you had. I want to do the other seasons in acrostic form. that was so fun doing Fall in Love!!
