Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield

The Seasons of Life

God created the Heaven and the Earth
     There after created man,
Dividing the changing seasons
     To the image of life's quartered span.

Spring, with the newness of a baby,
     Fresh, untainted and free,
Bound in no shackles of time
     But loved for its infancy.

Children like the days of summer
     Changing, growing and gay,
Ever in need of cultivation
     At school, at home and at play.

Each autumn emerges the harvest,
     The middle age summit of life,
Gleaned though the years of labor
     Is the consummate crop of strife.

Winter brings down the final curtain
     On age, like an adder's sting-
Yet, life can never lay dormant
     With the Creator's promise of spring.
