THE FIFTH SEASON

 

IN THE SPRING OF LIFE,

IN THE FLOWER OF YOUTH,

EVERYTHING IS BRIGHT AND NEW.

 

IN THE SUMMER OF LIFE,

TIME OF GROWTH AND CHANGE,

EACH DAY BRINGS NEW DREAMS TO PURSUE.

 

IN THE AUTUMN OF LIFE,

THERE'S A SETTLING DOWN,

CONTENTMENT AND SURENESS IN WHAT WE DO.

 

IN THE WINTER OF LIFE,

COMES PEACE AND WISDOM,

TIME TO RELAX AND REMINISCE, TOO: -

 

BUT WITH THE PASSING OF THESE SEASONS,

LIFE IS STILL NOT DONE, NOT THROUGH,

FOR THERE IS YET ANOTHER SEASON,

WHEN EACH SPIRIT IS RENEWED.

 

AND IT IS THIS CALM FIFTH SEASON,

IN THIS HOPEFUL SECOND SPRING,

A TIME OF CLEANSING AND REBIRTH,

A TIME OF NEW AWAKENING.

 

EACH PERSONS LIFE WILL COME FULL CIRCLE,

EVEN AS THE SEASONS DUE,

TO START ANOTHER, DIFFERENT LIFE,

MUCH BETTER THAN THE ONE WE KNEW.
