Winter wails her branches stiff

Escorting icicles and snowdrifts

Limbs draped battling bitter breeze

Snowflake medley sure to appease

Spring whispers as her destiny looms

Luminescent light through gossamer blooms

Beckoning birds! Their singing erratic

Perched on plush twigs, it's foliage emphatic

Summer dances to an array of hues

God sparked kiss of sweet morning dew

Warm sunshine smiles upon my skin

Makes me embrace this skin I'm in

Autumn swirled leaves upon my cheek

Orange-red, golden crisp under feet

Surrounding totem trunks with majesty

Chocolate bark, not unlike me

Like each leaf falls into new season

God created diversity for this reason

If a tree knows when it is time to change

We as people must know the same
