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.
