I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.
She was a real beauty,
a flower just beginning to blossom
and when she was at her best,
he took her for a dance,
Spring in all of her loveliness,
truly delighted him,
Summer was enchanted,
by all that she had done
and they flitted and danced,
all through their seasons,
and life was so good,
under the warm summer sun.
Soon Autumn began to eye Summer
and she was unhappy,
that he paid her no mind,
but soon that would change.
Spring became sadder
and soon faded away,
when that happened Autumn,
took Summer by the hand.
He was entranced by her colorfulness
and didn’t seem to mind losing Spring,
but he let himself forget,
as September drew to a close
and soon he realized that he’d been tricked
and Autumn took over.
When Summer was no more,
she knew that soon,
she and Winter would have a fling.
It was their time,
to dance and sing,
with cold winds blowing
and leaves twirling.
The excitement of first snow flakes,
as Spring slept in her beauty
and Summer dreamed of when they would be together.
Once Autumn and Winter,
finished their season of love
and the cold north winds stopped blowing,
it would be then that Winter would awaken Spring
and the spring breezes would melt Winter away.

Your personification of the seasons is refreshing. Very much expresses how we feel as they pass from one to another.

Very interesting poem. It was hard to follow the first time, so I read it a second time and I like it quite a bit.
