Change

Change...
Bright leaves of Fall
Flutter and sway,
Enchanting my eyes,
But they will all
Fall down to the ground next day.

Change...
Cold Winter snow
Chilling my bones
But soon it will melt.
Away it will go,
And leave sodden earth and wet stones.

Change...
Tender Spring flowers,
Scent of of soft rain,
Delicate beauty,
Gentle showers.
Next day, I'll seek you in vain.

Change...
Summer of heat;
Drowsy long days,
Chirp of cicadas.
Memories sweet,
But not a single one stays.

Change...
Seasons whirl 'round,
Changing of leaves,
Greening of grass,
Freezing of ground,
Stolen by next season's thieves.

Change...
Seasons of men,
Youth and old age
Walk hand-in-hand.
Sweet birth, and then
Death's hand writes the final page.

Change...
