Seasons and Reasons

July 22, 2008
By Joseph Hobbs, North Charleston, SC

A snow flake, oh how it glistens.

The cocked head from a dove, oh how it listens.

Oh how it listens to the sound of change,

Oh how it listens to the night's rain.

A single pink rose, a petal falls.

A lonely bluebird, it's crying call.

Oh how time flies, oh how people can lie.

Look as a humming bird whizzes by,

And a tree dies.

And then is reborn anew,

With rain a drip-drip-dropping off it's strong limbs.
