The March of the Four Seasons

MOVEMENT 1- AUTUMNAL SHIFT

Shatter the green with red, golden leaves fall once more,

Dark Nights come quickly; the heat slowly dissipates.

Feeling relief as the seasons begin their shift,

Earth rotates, tilts away, from the heat of the sun,

Give me the elements of fire and earth in war

As I implore for the seasons to change once more.

AUTUMN: FALL OVER IN THE LEAVES

The coolness of the air and the jumpers I wear bring me joy.

The smell of the leaves as the rain hits them on the ground is sound.

With my girl, I and her eat by the fire, cuddled up and safe.

Hallows Eve festivities bring the child in me back to life.

Thrilled by the fireworks, lighting up the darkness. misery dies.

Ice slowly forms on the cars, and the cold starts to take control.

MOVEMENT 2- FALL BREAKS AND BACK TO WINTER

Like with the changing of the day into the night

Seasons will echo this transforming world of ours

When Christmas departs from the minds and hearts of men

All will be left in the desolate cries of cold

Surviving and coping as the world is killing

What’s left of creatures that roam through the snow so white.

WINTER: BURNING SOUL

Ice is so cold it burns my winter soul;

You can’t leave your home, you my killed soul.

Watching your world freeze and die in the night;

Come to me with your despair filled soul.

Constantly dark and I can’t see your face;

I worry about you in my chilled soul.

Wounded by winter, the tree shows its bones;

Searching for green buds, for my fulfilled soul.

MOVEMENT 3- SOLSTICE

The night of the cold lasts so long and it scares me

Fading darkness as the dawn of the light comes on

Chorus of nature rejoices from its long sleep

Age of Aquarius hath come for me from dreams

Can it be? It is so! Spring blossoms forth once more

Call to you, I implore you to bring life again.

SPRING: SIGNS OF LIFE

The rain of life comes

As the blossom and the rainbows bloom

Children cheer again for sun

Mountains crumble hard

As the icebergs in my heart

Melting for my love

The flowers and the life

Come quickly to the budding flowers attention

Sun has a rose colour

MOVEMENT 4: RISE OF THE GOLDEN HORDE

Have you seen the seasons change from white to rainbow?

From the fiery leaves of autumn to icy winter

To the Spring where the signs of life slowly return

All that is to come and all that has come before

Culminates in the concert of the summertime

All worship the golden horde of the light bringer

SUMMER: IT NEVER LASTS

The light shines on the crystal blue ocean,

Celebrate, my friends! It’s a wild commotion.

The heat melts my ice cream by the searing seaside,

While the swooping seagulls fly and cry for food.

I don’t want summertime to end today

For its been so long since the time you went away

Six weeks is about the time I have to give you love

Then I have to fly away like the purest of the whitest doves

Children sing for the end of the school year

Burning all their books, its a sight, my dear

We all are blessed with the time to relax inside the heat

Though, for some, the fans keep turning into their sleep

No, I don’t want summertime to end today

I guess I’m in denial when I see the leaves falling, and the golden hay,

Soon will be September, the Harvest season is upon me

Though I’ll paddle in a pool, drinking cocktails, sitting in Hawaii.
