Seasonal Poem

Seasons Ebb Away 

As I sat on my back porch in my rocking chair today, I could see, feel and smell summer ebbing away.

I could hear the wind blowing softly through the trees. I could even see a few falling leaves.

I can tell by the shorter days that fall is on the way. The hot, lazy days of summer aren’t going to stay.

Blissful spring has come and gone.
The remaining days of sleepy summer won’t last long.

Glorious fall colors will soon appear.
But, like the flowers of summer they will disappear.

Winter will follow the fall as it always has.
Spring, summer and fall are again
Part of the past.

People can be compared to the seasons.
They are born, bloom, and ebb away.
Like spring, summer, and fall they cannot stay.

Winter will come as it always does.
If we are blessed, we have experienced the
seasons at their best.

A Beautiful Christmas Poem

Holiday Greeting

I heard you say on Christmas Day
“Joy! Peace to one and all!”
And round the tree you danced with glee
Till from your hair did fall

A ribbon of the deepest red –
A Christmas red, we both averred –
And so we plucked it from the snow
And gave it to a passing bird.

“Oh thank you!  Thank you!” she replied;
“A garland for my nest,
To say today’s a special day –
One different from the rest.”

Away she flew, the crimson trim
Rippling ’round her feet;
And wove it so that all could see
Her décor from the street.

A very Merry Christmas to
All birds with snowy berth
Whose voices ring in caroling
Of peace to men on Earth!
