Change of Seasons

Colourful Butterfly


Changes Are Good

Seasons come and seasons go
The summer wind gives in to winter snow
White sheets of powdered landscape everywhere
Children play and share the fun
making snowmen
enjoying the cold season with no sun

We adults seem to moan and groan
but kids make the best of nature
even if they are chilled to the bone
Running down slopes and tobogganing with ease
The always make it look like a breeze.

So next time when I am tempted to say
Its so cold, not a sun ray
I will look at the day through child rimmed glasses
And be grateful for eyes to see and ears to hear
Also my family are here still to share their life
And that fact we should hold so dear.

Thankful when it rains and does not
Suddenly without warning the clouds disappear
And summer winds over the horizon appear
Lambs skipping and calves prancing
Another season
The maidens are a dancing.
Thank God for every day of the year.

Seize the Moment

Summer and winter come around so quickly and before you know it, another year has passed by unnoticed

I love the idea of looking at the seasons of the year "through child rimmed glasses." Your poetry is uplifting.

Thanks Brenda. Yes time is really fleeting and one day seems to slip into another. Hope you are well and things better for you too.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on September 05, 2020:


That is so true. Time definitely slips by quickly and we need to be thankful for all the time we have.

Fall is fast approaching & with Covid-19 it seems my summer was not here.

But i have enjoyed the warmer weather & don't look forward to winter.

Thanks Lorna. Snow capped mountains and iced over lakes really invigorates the senses and you are so right, you feel refreshed.

Lorna Lamon on September 03, 2020:

I love each season for different reasons. However, a walk in winter when the air is frosty and you feel the crunch of snow underfoot would have to be a favourite of mine. A beautiful poem with wonderful artwork Diana.

Thanks Ankita. Accepting the changes of weather and seasons is better than disliking what is part of a yearly pattern.
