Nature, Country Life, Seasons
In the Spring the light green of emerging leaves
Give us hope. As it takes over the landscape,
it tell us Winter is past.
In Summer the leaves protect us,
And the roots of their trees,
From scorching midday sun.
In Fall the breathless beauty
Of golden leaves gives us our own
“Field of the cloth of Gold,.”
First on the trees, then as a carpet
Which, as leaf after leaf falls,
Covers the roots of the trees
To protect them from Winter’s blasts.
