The geese flying south
In a row long and VShaped
Pulling in winter.
(write in notes)
The summer
Still hangs
Heavy and sweet
With sunlight
As it did last year
The autumn
Still comes
Showering gold and
Crimson
As it did last year
The winter
Still stings
Clean and cold and
White
As it did last year
The spring
Still comes
Like a whisper in the
Dark night
It is only I
Who have changed.
