Changes of Season

Season's Changes
I sit upon an old dead log
Deep in the emerald woods,
Relaxing and observing all
While munching on my food
Cold the wind caressing me
Stirring up the leaves
Spiraling them unto the air
Where birds do chirp and sing
Hear the crisp and crunching sound
Of dry leaves underfoot
The fresh clean smell within the air
The trees in colours gay
Browns, greens, yellows and the reds
Their leaves a beauty to behold
I always welcome autumn grasp
Relief from the summer heat
Cool winds and the falling leaves
It's something quite special
The trees discarding all their leaves
Prepare for winter's cloak
The ice and snow the wild winds
The trials and tests of time
Until the change doth come again
And then rebirth in spring
How like our life these times of year
If we but look and see
As autumn follows summer's sun
As winter's hands do chill
So sorrow often follows joy
In trials of life's great storm
We loose the freshness of our soul
Our joy doth fade and wilt
Our graces scattered on the ground
As despair sweeps our heart
And then comes winter cold and dark
The sorrow falls on us
Our soul is shaken in its grasp
Tears and anguish flow
We weep and pray it will depart
Our faith oft weakens so
The trials and heartaches of life's storms
Engulf us in their midst
Yet if we stand the test before
Enduring winters winds
The light of spring will soon come round
Rebirth and growth in soul
Life is like the seasons four
A cycle we will meet
And like the oak they stronger make
If we but strongly stand
Embrace adversity in life
Clasp it to your breast
These tests and trails will make you whole
You'll be the stronger soul
