Seasons Anew

Orbiting the Sun, as though it were a ring
Summer then autumn, winter and spring
Opposites exist, as in day and night
The tilting of the Earth, now gives way to light

Of the inner planets, are we relatively near?
Orbiting Earth around the Sun in a year
Complexities of life, numerous reasons
Varying sunlight does create the seasons

Tilt towards the Sun, daylight will appear
A period of summer for that hemisphere
Lush green landscapes and longer days
Outdoor games in the sunshine rays

Shorter days of autumn, increased rain to fill
Leaves with less production of chlorophyll
Artistic shades of yellow, brown and red
Temperatures fallen, withered flower head

Chilly winter season, birds off to migrate
Bearing longer nights, animals hibernate
Trees losing leaves, dormant to survive
Incubated eggs, for winter has arrived

Such a joy in spring, fresh daises to pick
Wonders of new life, the hatching of a chick
Animals emerging, formation align
Plants burst into flower, ever so divine
