Seasons of the Heart

After the cold stormy days
And the dark lonely nights
From the frozen ground of winter
Emerges a small yellow and green
Bringing color and with it
Hope and warmth
Spring promises a new life
And a new life it does give

Everyone comes out of hiding
As the flowers bloom
And as the birds sing
Come the monsoon rains 
Or the hot summer sun
These are happy days

 But soon the green yellows
And the trees strip naked
Taking all that was
And all that could have been

Soon enough cold follows
Some embrace it, some run away
It’s beautiful if one spends enough time
Even addicting to an extent

But however long it may be
The green will surely come
And the frozen ground will thaw
Giving another chance to grow again
