Winter had just begun to thaw

Old footprints had begun to fade

It was the spring of my summer

When your light dawned upon my gate

Spring was a pleasant surprise this year

For a place that barely saw the season

My arid heart was now lush and green

It was beating with love as the reason

Summer was spent in smiles

Of every shape, size and colour

Spring happily overstayed its visit

Before autumn rudely walked into my parlour

Trouble in paradise, autumn brought

Questions about layers got uneasy

Perhaps it’s only autumn who feels

Letting things go is beautiful and breezy
