The Seasons

The seasons come and go 
They change when they please 
Their colors collide 
Making a beautiful transformation 
Then collide once again as they depart 

Winter sweeps the warm away 
Turning everything white 
The chill leaving no trace of heat 
The mountain tops now fit in 
Until it's time for winter to leave 

You know Springs on its way 
When white fades to green 
Other colors, springing to life 
Purples, yellows, and reds 
Leaving behind their allergens 

Allergies turn to sunburns 
As summer blazes in 
The beach and pool don't cover up 
The fact that summer burns everything 
Then leaves when it's burnt out 

When the feel of fire 
Turns to the look of fire, 
Trees of yellow, red, and orange begin to fall 
Fire falling, instead of heat rising 
Is a sign that winter's coming back
