The Spring And The Fall

Rating: 4.1
In the spring of the year, in the spring of the year,
I walked the road beside my dear.
The trees were black where the bark was wet.
I see them yet, in the spring of the year.
He broke me a bough of the blossoming peach
That was out of the way and hard to reach.

In the fall of the year, in the fall of the year,
I walked the road beside my dear.
The rooks went up with a raucous trill.
I hear them still, in the fall of the year.

Vincent knew and understood seasons. This poem uses two and they carry the meaning. It is such a magnificent poem because this is just what happens. 'It is not loves going that hurts my ways, but that it went in little ways.' Brilliant.

Year be springing or year be falling, The bark will drip and the birds be calling. There's much that's fine to see and hear........//// beautiful poem penned; excellent expression on the spring coming and going; the nature comes to us to make happy and again it goes far away but not giving the sorrow though we feel sometimes it; very impressive poem
