Oklahoma Seasons

Although this is a “secular” poem I wrote in 1988, a friend pointed out that the the changing of the seasons is part of the order that God set up in His creation, and of course all the delights of nature are His creation as well.

Genesis 1:14 “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years.”   Genesis 8:22 [God said] “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease.” (Both New American Standard)

The fields are white with cotton.

The fall winds start to blow.

Leaves are changing colors

In summer’s afterglow.

Then winter’s bitter nights

Trudge in with shorter days.

Filling life with feasting,

Parties, and Christmas plays.

Spring sweeps in her fresh bouquets

And tender, greening grasses.

Dew-sparkled buds and flowers

Perk up as winter passes.

Sunny summer calls our hearts

To lake or mountain playground.

Summers end and seasons change,

And fall begins a new round.
