One Man-One Scene-Four Seasons
(A seasonal "Tree"-tise)

Avian choirs hail nature's birth,
Verdant fields sport floral themes,
Willows bloom for all their worth,
All bowed in humble prayer it seems.

Nature takes a pregnant pause,
Crickets whine from poplars lair, 
Birds take shelter in their boughs,;
A sultry breeze would ease the air.

Scarlet reds and brilliant gold,
Vivid hues in crisp, clean air,
Elms and oaks stand, soldiers bold,
Bellies burgeon with wildlife fare.

Like bowls of flour dumped,
By some errant clumsy child;
Pines and firs stand clothed in snow,
So very quiet, cold and wild.

Author's Notes:
There is a scenic vista just north of Augusta, Maine where Mount Khatadin is framed by trees and a lake. I have seen this scene in virtually every season ( I have travelled throughout northeast North America on business). I wrote this poem so I could aptly describe it to my family. It started with the last stanza (Winter) and it progressed from there.

This is a beautiful poem. Your words paint a very pretty picture. I live in Maine and can just imagine this vista you describe.

~ very well written.

Lovely poem, Bruce. I would say you have achieved the aim stated in the About section. This is a vivid and colourful picture.

Beautiful write, beautifully done. I have written several poems starting at the end and going backward. This works fairly well sometimes...Poetman

Class, just sheer class. Reminds me of the Mourne Mountains here in Ireland.
