I am currently completing an English elective subject and as part of our assignment we have to write a poem. At first I found it hard to choose a topic and I found myself procrastinating to much. My husband gave me the idea to write about the seasons and what they mean to me…. and wolah….. before you know it, I have written my very first poem. I still needs some fine tuning, but not a bad start.
The Aussie Seasons of the year, there is four of them
Summer is warm, the days are long
Sun to our skin, like a singer to a song.
The beach comes alive with happiness and laughter
as families unite, BBQ first and a swim after.
In Autumn the leaves transform to a bright amber,
This marks the transition, as nights become longer
Trees start to shed, as the temperature settles,
wind verses leaf and their never ending battles.
Winter is cooler, as Earth moves from the sun
Later the sun rises, earlier the days are done.
Outdoors freeze up, hibernation sets in
Colds knock us down, longing for the summer is my skin.
Spring is sensational, the trees begin to bloom,
a bee hunts sweet nectar, while bathing in flowers perfume.
Rebirth of life, cant wait for what comes after,
not long until summer with its happiness and laughter.
Would love to hear your thoughts.
