A Poem about the Seasons

Updated on March 16, 2017

From Summer to Spring

The weather is an interesting phenomenon and one way of talking about it is to write about it in the form of poetry or descriptive writing.

It seems to affect people in various ways, we seek to find the right climate but seldom find it. The weather effects the moods of some of us, while others sail along regardless of the colour of the sky.

I have an idea that most people are affected by the weather in one way or the other.

Does the weather or rather the different types of weather affect you in some way, positively or negatively? (Take the poll later in this writing to vote for your favourite season)


Four Seasons

It was a warm time, it became a windy time

there was some cold too, it crept through the window

this is summer with varied weather moods

but already moving towards autumn, then winter

The wind was fierce, it shook the house

the heat came basking in morning light

and stayed all day with a its ponderous load

a stifling heat, the flowers and shrubs wilted

Some cool, overcast days threatening rain

the rain it fell at night, cooling the earth

puddles formed in the roads and on verges

but next day the sun soon dried the grass

Birds flew freely and perched on tree branches

wind again cooled heat and chased city smog away

endless weather patterns, four seasons in one day sometimes

a little winter's cold already creeping in

Remembering the cool mist hanging over the sea

no snow here in the city in winter

only inland it falls freely on the massive mountains

making the entire area cold as ice

Still warm summer weather here though

now and then a hint of autumn's cooling touch

and a slight tapping on the window of winters hands

when eventually it will arrive and hold the world in its cold embrace

In three to four months winter will be here

still some warm dry days will prevail when it's upon us

and much rain will most likely fall

here where the sun and wind can be most powerful

Spring abounds, thawing winters cold grip

flowers and plants spring to life, a buck nibbles at the growing shoots

children play in the light of the sun

people come outside, with a new purpose in their hearts, to live again

Summers like a mellow, dry, hot, wind-beaten beach-house

autumn's a cool tree shedding its leaves

winter's a harsh cold cloud covering the mountains

spring's an awakening of plants and all creatures

The four Seasons

      Good changes and transitions. A very different and interesting lens. Good work.

      Lovely poem, just perfect for our momentary weather conditions... Spring already started but we expect one more load of snow and they say it will be big one... Thanks for catching a spirit!
