Life Passes - Poem by Raymond Farrell

Life passes
In spring
With excuberance and force
Like icy water
Gushing through a culvert
In summer
Like hot sand
Through the fingers
In autumn
A hesitant trickle
After summer's heat
In winter
Unseen slowly moving
Beneath the ice
Or with the fury
Of a blinding blizzard
Life passes.
