Seasons of Love


Our love came in the gentle Spring,
So sweet and fresh and true -
When we were young and unafraid,
And all was clear and new.

It blossomed in the Summertime,
And came to fullest bloom -
We lay beneath the Cedar Tree,
Our love there to consume.

But in the chill of Autumn mist,
It then began to wane -
No longer did we feel the joy,
Nor would we e’er again.

So as the Winter gripped our hearts,
Our hands then slipped apart -
We said goodbye and turned away,
As love did then depart.

    Love's insubstantiality in a neatly constructed poem. A real pleasure to read (as always) . (Report) Reply

    Love can leave things behind, but sometimes we leave behind love under that cedar tree. A sad story... But so transfixing while read. Nice work.

    A natural withering away in winter after a sprouting in spring, a blooming in summer and a ripening in autumn! Enjoyed these seasons of love! (Report) Reply

    Similiar to my Seasons Of Life, but much better. I hope this is not a true story.

    Very beautifullt and smoothly your thoughts go with flow and rhythm of seasons. It ends in a gloomy wintry note. (Report) Reply

    Your portrayal of the seasons of love has transported my thoughts into a world of nostalgic anguish that I would cherish to feel...

    Metaphorically perfect in four part harmony. Reminds me of an old Paul Simon song, April, come she will...... (Report) Reply

    A very sad story that touches the heart. But then, it sets for the reality of life. Again, beautifully penned and finely set. (Report) Reply
