I'm Many Things


I'm many things,
Picked from each season.
And that which I represent,
Has a meaning that reflects on me.

I'm many things,
Like the snow in Winter goes,
When the Spring begins to melt...
With the dawning of a warming Sun,
Shows.

I'm many things,
From experiences I've known.
Reflect I do,
An affection for adventure.

I'm many things,
To resist a strict unchanging,
From a blooming that insist...
Limits diminish and go.

I'm many things,
Like in Summer that shares it all...
To remember,
When the leaves in Autumn...
Fall.

I'm many things,
Like the snow in Winter goes,
As a dawning of a warming Sun...
Shows.

I'm many things,
Picked from each season.
I'm many things,
And that which I represent,
Has a meaning...
That reflects on me,
And grows.

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
