Seasons

Ah, how the seasons roll on by,

with time and life in tow.

Oh, they bring changes and a sigh;

surprise from head to toe.

 

Spring arrives declaring new growth,

the lawn needs re-seeding.

Youth passes defying my oaths,

my hair is receding.

 

Summer’s wildly warm and buoyant,

leaves are bright in the trees.

Aging’s calling for more ointment,

I’ve a pain in my knees.

 

Fall brings a crisp chill to the air,

vibrant colors delight.

There’s a new baldness in my hair,

what’s happened to my sight?

 

Winter’s stillness is so calming,

the snow is getting deep.

Though not ready for embalming,

I’d like a good night’s sleep.
