In Season’s Trust
Enchanted woodland’s changing themes,
all seasons drift 'neath moonlit streams.
Warm, cozy nest waits newborn gift,
sustaining life when Nature deems.
'Neath moonlit streams all seasons drift,
moon's guiding light in constant shift.
Bespeckled sprigs of Columbine,
with umber-browns of Prickly Pine.
Li'l critters forage mossy grounds,
creations callings intertwine.
Of Prickly Pine, with umber-browns,
huck-berries lumber, bear surrounds.
High mountains seep cascading sky,
earth's liquid soul meanders by.
A vital life force, greatest role;
clear flowing rivers satisfy.
Meanders by, earth's liquid soul,
through forest greens to grassy knoll.
Soon, songbird's distant silhouette
urge amber leaves to pirouette.
'Pon tapestry of autumn's eves
all living things brace winter's threat.
To pirouette, urge amber leaves ...
grey mouse descends 'neath fallen sheaves.
Each mammal hidden, now en-clasp -
fierce, bitter gusts howl winter’s rasp.
Life prospers, bending to adjust
the changing winds, within Earth's grasp.
Howl winter’s rasps, fierce, bitter gusts ...
four seasons shift ~ bears nature's trust.
