Seasons Of Mind

Promises not kept, failing repaying debt
commitments not fulfilled and no time left.
I swear, I sweat, I feel so hot
This is the Summer, don't say me not.

Hide ans seek my wishes play
now I'm sad and now I'm gay!
changing my moods, so high and low
This is the Monsoon I know, I know.

Commitments fulfilled, promises kept
accomplished, satisfied, free from debt.
I'm in peace now, happy and gay
This is the Autumn, need not say.

Death and despair makes my day
hope and trust have lost their way!
Friends are away and fear that reigns
I know, I know, the Winter prevails.

Everything is colorful, every heart is bright
I'm so cheerful, happy and light!
Wishes are fulfilled, dreams come true
This is the Spring, I know, I know.

    Seasons of the mind, life changes all the time, the renewal of spring, the growth of summer, in autumn we reap the fruit, which sustains us through the winter of out lives. A very good poem which I enjoyed reading. Bob (Report) Reply

    In our view, this is an accomplished product of your sensitivity and fertile imagination!
    We've enjoyed the different features of mind at each season... even though some of those are not desirable, we know. You have 'travelled' across Life!
    Good luck! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
