Seasons Of Change - Poem by Patricia Grantham

Trees begin to bare their limbs as their many leaves are shed
Chameleons changes color from the tail to the top of their head
Animals go into hibernation before the first cold winter blast
So it is with our lives we must never try to live in the past

The sun begins to casts its shadows heralding the close of day
A flock of birds flies south creating great shapes along the way
Squirrels scurrying and searching about gathering and storing nuts
If it wasn't for the seasons of change we would all be stuck in ruts

The wind may blow in any direction north, south, east or west
When the storms of life has passed all have withstood its test
Everything must change when it's time to step out their range
Sow and reap, build up, tear down, this is our season of change

    I really enjoyed your poem. Everything in Nature changes but why doesn't man? Change man change. (Report)Reply

    Very good Patricia - a time for every purpose under Heaven. So very true, and how boring life would be without the changing seasons. A lovely read. (Report)Reply

    With the change of seasons, we also have to change.... Each stage of life expects us to bring about certain changes. In adulthood, we cannot behave like a baby...... Trying to live in the present is the secret of success in life! Incorporating lessons from Nature, you have presented a beautiful message in a beautiful poem! (Report)Reply
