The Seasons

by Thomas K. Hunt

Summer days have faded
July and August, June a distant dream
Golden rays, blue skies, misty summer steam


Surrounding greens, morning blankets of dew
Fields of wild flowers suffuse the rainbows hue


The soothing river, cool velvet on the skin
Sounds of laughter from children jumping in


Street corner bustle, music in the air
Roller coasters and smells from a fair


Those days are gone
They’ve all disappeared
Now that Fall has fallen
Autumns fallen here


Browns and reds, yellows and gray
Cool breezes getting cooler every day


Pepper allies, bon fires with rising flames
Cheers and chants the night before the game


Sweater weather, apple cider from jars
The fullest moons encircled by stars


Dusky dawns rise through colorless haze
Clouded skies, overcastting days


Gradient temperatures sloping down
Turning dew to frost that covers the ground


Soon to be shrouded under depths of frozen white
Cold and crisp are the breath shown nights


Ice sickles hang jagged in rows
Evergreen wreaths donned crimson bows


Fat men of white guard frozen lawns
Three toed footprints freshly made in the dawn


Ice sickles wither, shedding their tears
The frozen snow will soon disappear


Waterfalls flow forceful with might
Crystal clean foaming bubbles of white


Browns turn to green, trees sprout their buds
The sun warms the earth and dries up the mud


Sweet smell of lilacs waft through the night
A red breasted robin makes her first flight


April showers cleanse the land clear
Once again Springtime is here


It won’t be long for it to will end
Summer days will be back again
