A Year Of Love

Cold frost melts away
Seeds of life begin
Saplings sprout their tender roots
Fauna bursts to life
And my love blossoms in the spring

Summer showers quench the earth
Parched in the heat of the sun
Downbursts rise the riverbanks
Trees reaching up for life
And my love roasts in summer's haze

Harvests reaped and gathered
Fruits of the earth revered
Withering branches sway forlorn
Their vitality gone for now
And my love fades like autumn leaves

Mist rolls over the hills
Creeping down the valley
Clouds hang heavy in the air
Darkening the skies
And my love dies in the cold of winter
