Leaves

Dead and gone,
Hidden under snow,
Brown and wet,
The winter's child.

Green and new,
Bursting forth,
Full of life:
Springtime's child.

Dark green and large,
Leafy shade,
Bringing shelter:
Child of summer.

Amber and falling,
A fountain of leaves,
Crunchy and light:
Daughters of Autumn.

Seasons come,
Seasons go,
Ever changing,
Ever changed.

The End
