Essences of Four Seasons

Updated on May 19, 2017

Winter's ice and snowflakes all trying to coat,

Giving us poets fine subjects on which to dote.

Black crows there silhouetted on white fields,

Calling for Spring, the warming sun so yields.

Tree limbs all bend so low, under their icy load,

Frozen ponds shimmering, as sights to forbode.

Sweaters, the heavy wraps now to be adorned,

Swift winds blowing, as we are each forewarned.

Spring, fresh air and flowering bloom comes,

Shrubs, trees, the fruits, cherries and plums.

Warming climes, as all's hopes are now rising,

Wild creatures to respond, life's so appetising.

Honey bees all stirring, the butterflies flighting,

As pretty flowers line roadsides, all delighting.

Photographs and paintings, recording the time,

As in lighthearted poets, inspiring every rhyme.

Cool Springtime evenings, Jasmine scent wafts,

Young folks get outside, explore streams in rafts.

Fishing poles are uncovered, on trips to the lake,

The fresh smell, so clean, in each breath we take.

Summer rain, thunder in the night, better sleeps,

Dreams of warming sunshine, longer time creeps.

Swimming in pools, offering sunning on beaches,

Long pants, shirts stuffed, for shorter all reaches.

Magnolias all blooming, a full moon all's assuming,

Awaiting the early dawning, new gardens grooming.

Bare feet on dirt roads pattering, rabbits scattering,

Memories of a kid growing up are all that's mattering.

Autumn colors, reds and the golds, patterning trees,

The sharper cooler tingling in the evening's breeze.

Time to retrieve the sweaters once more, light jacket,

Running deer in the woodlands, woodpecker's racket.

A magic colorful kaleidoscope, a picture puzzle of sorts,

The lines of trees in the forests, fields, a squirrel cavorts,

Geese all flying at sundown, as other wild birds migrate,

Winter soon to show its face, the colder times to embrace.
