And so we watch and so we learn/With eyes wide for our dreams to yearn

Seasons Change

One of my most recent poems that I’m rather fond of. Can you be fond of your own work? It’s sorta a watered-down word for proud, I suppose. 😛

Seasons come and seasons go
These flowing currents, where do they go?
A gradual change so grand it seems
Winter summer autumn spring
A transition of such extremes
How can we measure such a thing?
In clocks and rules and meters fair?
How does it go? It doesn’t care

And so we watch and so we learn
With eyes wide for our dreams to yearn

Seasons come and seasons go
Time passes as energies flow
The little minutes tick slowly by
As the earth turns in its might
Yin and yang twists in the sky
As day is taken by the night
And I can only dream and sigh
Worlds of the past live in my eye

And so things change from past to now
Only to watch, we wonder how

Seasons come and seasons go
In worlds they swelter while others snow
Leaves of brown sink to the earth
And dust-trails dance apon the breeze
While I watch new green life give birth
In rains of lands beyond the seas
Worlds revolve beyond what we know
Lead from the start how seasons go

And so things blossom and branches grow
Laden with gifts of fruit or snow

Seasons come and seasons go
And so life turns, ever so slow
Lives in parallel they dance
In chill and heat, in wind and land
We must seek out given the chance
To find new shores on which to stand
And learn the variance of place
Contrasting life through time and space

And so we rest and so we fly
Until all ends and seasons die
