Changeover

The Seasons led
By Rose tinted red
And sky's tears of empathy

New breath awakes
By Earth's give and take
Giving life a chance to be

Then sweltering heat
As two seasons meet
The sun glowing fearless and bright

Grass grown from under
By the patience of summer
With its color, vibrance, and light

But the flowers they wither
As changes come hither
Feathers of trees change their hue

The breeze becomes wind
As the season folds in
The strength of all Autumn renewed

And chill becomes bite
Day becomes night
Cold flurries be coming our way

The green of summer, and lo
Is buried in snow
Falling down despite what we say

And thus, this is life
Though it may calls us strife
I all comes back in due course

In a world of machines
Shallow human dreams
Nature must be its own force

I liked your poem. It was pretty and relatively simple, but it had a nice flow. I liked your comment before about making mundane things seem beautiful because I have a poem that does the same thing and I really saw that represented here. I didn't like the second last stanza though because it lacked focus. I loved the last stanza because it pulled people and our problems into the poem.

Well done. :)
