Seasons Of Love - Poem by Valerie Dohren

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 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.
    At least your love and ability with poetry has not departed-another10

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

  • Dinesh Nair (6/23/2013 7:33:00 AM)

    Your portrayal of the seasons of love has transported my thoughts into a world of nostalgic anguish that I would cherish to feel...
    When Valerie spins her beans who can help not bending down and picking them up?

    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

    Love and Life not always one
    Things do change for everyone
    But not everyone can describe the so many times sad evolution of life like a Poet can, Just a few beautiful images, words stanzas, and it's All there
    That is what Valerie Dohren has so masterfully done with Seasons of Love BEAUTIFUL and as Life, sad
