The leaves are turning yellow,
the grass with stunted growing,
is changing with the seasons,
no longer needing mowing.
Fall is falling into place
awaiting winter’s cold,
spring and summer…come and gone
like winter’s transient snow.
And life goes on…
or sometimes doesn’t;
does it really matter what was…
or what wasn’t?
What matters most is that we know
how much to love, how deep to grow;
just a few of many reasons
to appreciate life’s changing seasons.
If you are in the spring of life
or summer’s slowing pace
be prepared for autumn
to usher winter’s grace.
Though leaves are turning yellow,
And grass is withering,
summer, fall and winter await the birth of spring.
