Poets have said beauty lasts but a season
I disagree
for in this rhyme lies my reason
In every time and every way
does beauty hold sway
from deepest crackling cold
of mid-winter night
to summer's display
of Nature's vibrant glory
and uncanny delight

Spring
is a time of renewal and procreation
ice melts and ground thaws
in burgeoning expectation
up the trunks of majestic trees
life will creep
as Nature's children awaken
from long winter sleep
Budding branches split with the hesitant green
of new born leaves
returning birds sing a song serene
accepting vernal promise
and winter's reprieves

Colors explode
with rapturous abandon in High summer's heat
from wildflowers in full bloom
tinting the air with sweet
scents of Mother Earth's own perfume
Burdensome fruit
drag down blackberry canes
spicy earth scents the air after warm summer rains
butterflies and dragonflies
add a touch of faerie
dancing across the skies
while cicadas hum
and chipmunks make merry

Summer color pales
before Autumnal finery that prevails
in cloaking the world in vibrant hues
Banshee winds howl the news
to Nature's waiting ears
that fatten for their long sleep
between passing years
in dens dug safe and deep
Birds migrate south
obeying fate and instinctive call
rushing ahead of first snowfall

In winter bare limbs reach into the sky
like skeletal fingers
desperately grasping at reasons why
Crystal clear nights
provide awesome sights
from Northern Lights
to stars arrayed
like diamonds displayed
glittering with wonder
so profound
that hardened hearts
are torn asunder
with winters snowy
and cold arts
Solitude speaks volumes
in dead winter's echoless tombs
muffled by snow
and icy airflow

These then are my reasons
for claiming beauty in all seasons
and swear it falls not to decay
I see such
as both pride and duty
to relay the beauty
we hide with garish technological display

I too agree that there is beauty in every season.  Great work, I especially loved the verse on fall.

Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,

Like a jewel, like a flower, like the icy stars, I could live inside your descriptions!

You write beautifully.

Dark one - and here I see you again in the half-light. This is exquisite - and did indeed capture for me the beauty of your seasons - especially winter for I know not of the snow.

Thankyou for this my friend - I am so much clearer on your weather!

Splendid display of nature in words
Very nice to read and leading through.

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

You did well with the seasons.  I always claim each new season as my favorite, they are all beautiful in their own right, it's hard to choose!
