Four Seasons of the Year

Breezes are blowing,
leaves are falling,
a chill is in the air.
Winter is coming,
farmers harvesting,
green foliage is rare.

Snow gently descending,
children playfully sledding,
many a frosted roof.
Badgers burrowing,
squirrels scurrying,
bears are keeping aloof.

Spring is arriving,
birds once again flying,
young deer scamper around.
Rain softly pattering,
streams slowly trickling,
colorful flowers abound.

Boats a-sailing,
people swimming,
summer is finally here.
Berries a-ripening,
everyone gathering,
off to another year!

    I liked this poem, but I think the parenthetical in unnecessary. Some good images, it took me all round the year. (Report) Reply

    Hi Miranda!

    Thanks for reading my poem. I like yours very much. Those 'aloof bears' are popular with me as well. The close captures the cyclical nature of the seasons with much skilll.
    Have great success in all your hobbies! You are a poet!

    I love your use of words specially in these parts<'squirrels scurrying,
    bears are keeping aloof.'<- I can see it happening in my minds eye.
    Oh, I love this part, 'Rain softly pattering,
    streams slowly trickling,
    colorful flowers abound.'
    Anyway, I found your poem to be very craftly put together.. The 2nd part doesn't mention a season... hmm Maybe its the first one that doesn't contain the word autumn... hmm but maybe it is intentional...
    I like it. ^_^ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
