Treasure Island

Seasons of life


Spring is like youth or one’s childhood
The season of growth from a seed
Grasses grow and trees are in bud
Soils are covered with plant or weed
Babies soon learn to walk and talk
Children manage a knife and fork

Summer is like having children
Flowers, shrubs and trees are in bloom
Birds have young both wren and raven
Ever yellow are gorse and broom
Starting work now you’re fully grown
Marriage and children of your own

Autumn is like when children leave
Leaves turn brown and bright petals drop
Swallows go and then geese arrive
Fruit and plum trees give a good crop
Success or not the die is cast
The time that’s left is going fast

Winter is like when work is done
Grass doesn’t grow and leaves now fall
Days are short and low is the sun
Life has slowed, it’s just at a crawl
Be useful if your health is good
Keep doing and learning as you should

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
