Spring: an avalanche of new birth,

Flowers, and trees, in new life burst out,

The birds, and creatures all on earth,

Thrusting, singing to mature before summer’s drought.

Summer: A slower pace for all to show their beauty,

Perfume wafting, pollinating, on a gentle breeze,

Flowers in hedgerows, fields and gardens,

Fulfilling themselves before Autumn storms start to tease.

Autumn: Days shorten, nights get cooler,

Some brave flowers hang on defiantly,

Most drop off, as the leaves change colour,

Soon winter frosts will take over completely.

Winter:The earth now hard, covered in frost,

The trees stripped bare in dormant mood,

Leaves lay thick turning to compost,

In spring they succour their roots with nature’s food.
