Many Shades Of Green
Spring is a new beginning, giving to the

many shades of green:
Starting out regrowth and new birth in
Many appear through shoots or buds, peeking
up from the earth,
Another year of new birth.
Summer, nature flourishes in growth,
while reaching for the sun,
In it's peak of beauty of the many shades
For yet their change is not done.
Fall, nature changes into deeper colors,
and sheds her leaves,
Seed and pollen are carried by the breeze,
Landing in the cradle of mother earth.
Blending with the soil, to create and show
Winter nurtures and stores, while underground,
covered with a blanket of snow,
Waiting for the warmth of spring, for the seeds
