A season passing

A sheet of frost across the ground

Autumn shades of gold and brown

A passing breeze chills brisk the air

The winter warlock his presence bares

Trees shoot up from barren ground

Their orange leaves and yellow boughs

Offer to this morning’s light

A truly wondrous and pleasing sight

Birds from the north in woods abound

Sending forth their melodic sounds

To us give peaceful tranquility

Sweet tones up to God, offering

Blue skies fall from up above

Beckoning the turtle dove

Clouds of white float aimlessly

Across the abyss of skyward sea

A season starts as another ends

One cycle stops as one begins

Earths creatures call the mating song

And send forth an heir to carry on

Ancestral bones of long ago

Embedded in the ebb and flow

Serve to offer for the young

A path to guide and carry on

Yet all this change to come around

With faint its touch remiss of sound

Would not pause the earth from spinning round

or change its pattern nor shift its ground

God placed his design upon this earth

When life is lost, to death from birth

That from example we might see

His plan for all humanity

For what is there if nothing more

To live and die no future store

As blocks laid on hardened sand

Children on our lessons stand

But for us God sent forth his heir

A show of love and heartfelt care

And give forth an opportunity

That binds of sin would we be free
