Just something to shake the cobwebs off. I suppose you could say that I attempt to give the changing of seasons a personified romance.


Their love was the most profound

It had beauty with seemingly endless bounds.


When the time was just right the would hold each other so tight,

As if doing so would stop all of time, and prevent the inevitable,

Tomorrow’s promise of new light.


Their love produced such heated energy that all adored it.

For it had a power that was responsible for warming all of the world.


Such treasured romance had so many unimaginable rewards, such as endless happiness, and pure satisfaction, which seem to create a global increase in production and it could even calm the fires that fueled the hatred in many rivaling factions.


However, this fairytale love was tainted by the randomness of fate in our universe.

For almost half a year, every year, these two lovers were left apart.

This was part of their lover’s curse.


Without one another, there was a honest feeling that they might die, and the thought of this happening while they were not together,

Brought such sadness and despair,

That it made the whole world cold, and chilled Earth’s very air.


All this time, without even a single word,

Drove both of them madly insane, and became our weather’s personal bane.


Our crops would die, wither away,

It left most of us hungry and our anger only grew, under this constant strain.


But fear not, because through such cold, lonely, and harsh times,

The two lovers would meet by chance, yet again.


Bringing with their next embrace, a new hopeful promise

That Spring and Summer, had returned once again.
