A Tale of Two Poems

As the year draws to an end and we think about welcoming in a new year, our thoughts often turn to the different seasons and what they’ll bring. Will 2015 be full of darkness and despair, like the first poem, or will it bring lightness and cheer like the second?

Dark Thoughts for All Seasons

Spring: the Easter bunny, helping build the obese

Summer: heat waves, aiding the spread of skin cancer

Autumn: darker days, bringing with it depression

Winter: Christmas costs, who says scrooge died long ago?

 Happy Thoughts for All Seasons

Spring: lambs and fresh flowers, nature reigns eternal

Summer: glorious sunshine, lifting all hearts

Autumn: crisp colours, sweet harvest smells linger

Winter: snowfall, snowflakes and sledging, a child’s dream.

  2. Goodness the stark contrast is revealing. It reminds me of a saying, “Two men looked out through prison bars, one saw mud and the other saw stars”. It truly is all in the mind of the beholder.

  3. Summer: glorious sunshine, lifting all hearts — yes, that is all me. Love summer!

  4. Hello Esther, I love reading your story thank you so much for sharing.
