All In A Year

By Bud Lemire

The leaves on the trees have fallen
I hear the Winter winds calling
Snow has begun, flakes are in the air
Icy roads are found, almost everywhere

Thanksgiving and Turkey, always sound great
Holiday goodies, I'll gain some more weight
The Christmas tree and gifts on Christmas Day
An end of a year that wouldn't stay

A new year, and freshly fallen snow
As my mind takes in all there is to know
Another year older, and wiser too
Picking up experiences that I never knew

More pictures to be taken
More poems I'll be making
Spring time cheer it'll be bringing
Birds come out and are singing
A Class Reunion, friends gather around
Mates in conversation, is a great sound

Summer brings heat, many on the beach
Fireworks high in the sky, out of reach
The butterflies fly away
It gets colder every day
Trick or Treat, it's once again Halloween
It's all in a year, and much more in between

Author Note:

Every year brings so much. And every year
may bring the same events, but each year it
is different in its own way. Changes that
make each year more special.
