End the Old, Begin Anew

Autumn is going

the leaves have fallen

the flowers have gone to seed.

The sun is travelling further away

so that the cold of  Winter may intercede.

Life in itself passes the years

on to better ways.

Love gets lost in silliness and bitterness sets to play.

Anger simmers and grudges held.

The warmth of love gets locked away.

Love turns cold as Winter and

interferes with the Heart.

The Spring thaw comes, melts the ice and

opens the doors anew,

Now flowers bloom, leaves are back and

Summers here to stay,

Love may now conquer all the ill affects of yesterday.
