A Time for Every Season


In a quiet garden, 
sitting on a tree,
a bird got to talking 
with a busy bee.

The bee wanted to know: 
tell me, my dear -
what is your favorite 
time of the year?

The bird thought deeply 
season by season,
wanting to impress
the bee with her reason.

She thought of the hope
and the promise of spring;
of the lazy heat
that summer will bring.

Of autumn's lovely colors,
all smokey and gold;
and the cruel beauty
of the harsh winter's cold.

She thought of happy singing
when summer is bright,
and finding a cozy shelter
for the winter's night.

And finally she said
let me answer, dear:
my favorite must always be
the time that is here.


Featured: A nice day out.

  28. You wrote the poem so beautifully, and said exactly what I think too... there is something perfectly lovely about each season, although winter certainly drags out its welcome a bit too long, ha! What a lovely day to be out, such sweet delights you shared, an amazing salad, dinner, beautiful views, flowers, and pretties to look at! Delightful, all of it!
