SEASONS

Each season speaks a language all its own,
and every season wears a different dress.
While Autumn cloaks herself in amber tone,
bare Winter's gown is laced in quietness.

Refreshing as a soft pastel bouquet,
florescent Spring peeps out in tender green,
while luscious Summer's decked in full array
and brazenly explodes upon the scene.

Spring whispers with a voice as sweet as youth,
while Summer shouts with hale and hardy breath;
tired Autumn sighs with wisdom and with truth,
while Winter's hush is tantamount to death.

All seasons have a voice that is unique,
but God alone announces when they speak.
