Seasonal Heart

Summer daze

Slain by Winter Knights,

Warmth lost in snow,

Green turned to silver-white.

Frozen tears of ice

Wash the Sun away.

Skies of cotton white and baby blue

Fade to dark and dreary shades of grey.

Memories from beneath the old oak,

And of the tire swing over the stream,

Seem so far away and misty

Like the remnants of a dream.

Your love no longer brings me light,

Only cold and hollow pain.

So I cast your heart aside and wait

For the one who brings upon me the joy of Spring again.
