Has come today
Out with the old and in with the new
Is nature's everlasting cue
For a short time such as this
Who would want to miss
The bird songs with the raindrops?
Good weather is a time for rejuvenation and for laughter
With tears only after,
For when the joy, flowers, and green are gone
Deserted is one's lawn
For a blanket of white cannot hide
The green that has died.
For the Trifecta Writing Challenge this week, the definition of "New" as "Having been in a relationship or condition but a short time" was used.
