The Four Seasons


The Four Seasons                                                                       Written by: Cecilia Pang

 

Swirls of bright colours flutter through the air

With each step I take, a crisp sound echoes through

Sweet scents of maple and pine, greet my nose hello

The world is prepared for it’s long sleep

The family of bears, curled up together

Just as the families do, bonded with love

I glance up and see the birds say their goodbyes

The world is ready to sleep and welcome their blanket

 

I peak under the white fluffy covers and see Mother Earth

She is covered with soft sprinkles of millions of crystals

The trees stand gracefully, dancing to the chilly winds

And loved ones cuddle to sip a cup of chocolate

But at night, the children of light come

Their radiance shine through the midnight sky

Streams of magic are left and streaked through the air

Old Saint Nicholas is almost here

 

The heavens open up to greet spring

And spring greets me with its fresh zephyrs dancing on my back

It’s melodic sounds of sprinkling rain are music to my ears

Red rain boots splashing about in turbid puddles

Then when the rain has gone, the whistles of birds are heard

And blossoming flowers bow down,kissing my toes

The birds were meant to fly, and the sun like a torch was meant to shine

As life awakens from it’s long enchanted sleep

It blooms fuller and bigger into the summer I know

 

The smear of ice cream and frazzled hair

I need a sweet slice of summer, the juice dribbling down my chin

There’s a laughter contagion

Splashes of sunset, peak over the glassy surface of water

And then fly away to the clouds, their home of dreams

Walking along the shore of the pearly white beaches

I gaze beneath the water to see if there is more

My footprints reveal a path, a journey that hasn’t ended yet
