The seasons blend into one! The Foureyed Poet.
The leaves fell more rapidly from the trees
the autumn season changed the scene
chilly long days and early darkness
accompanied by frosts and more rain
with the winter standing by on cue
knowing the bad weather was due!
This for so long is how it has always been
today the seasons are not so defined
milder conditions are more common
floods are a bigger risk than snow
in the early sixties when I was a boy
each season marked then to enjoy!
Better when the weather seemed balanced
bad conditions came in a sequence
easier to plan holidays and events
recall when it felt a more settled time
now the climate has become unstable
with the ever rising water table!
A harsh and bleak future full of despair
lay ahead unless we learn to care!
The Foureyed Poet.
