I will never cease to wonder at the seasons of life, and how we must adapt, or become useless. Life is a lifelong challenge for each of us.
Winter is Coming
Well, It's been so hot and muggy day after day
With the Sun beating down so hard on me
But now comes the steamy clouds and the cooling rain
Showing me that very soon, the winter will be on its way.
The roses are through with blooming and summer flowers faded
the Sun is no longer beating down on me.
I see the days grow short and the sky a darker grey
all this makes me think that winter's on the way.
The oak leaves will fall in the colder evening breeze
The Sun's pulled back from us and is far away
With branch's bare, soon, cooler grows the day's
Its proving to me, that winter's on the way
The birds that nested in the trees, bore their young
in nests of twigs, and sang their tweeting song's
but now they are gone, flying their little family's away
showing me, its inevitable that winter's on the way.
