Winter never came,
Spring came too soon.
Summer came and burned us up,
Autumn’s hope from doom.
Childhood raced me by,
Grown-up came too soon.
Parenthood came and livened things up,
Ancient wisdom is my future bloom.
I live upon the seasons, God,
Seasons come and go.
So fast, oh God, so fast.
We yearn, we long,
We freeze, we burn,
We change as seasons go.
Forgive us, Lord,
We forget; we long for seasons gone.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Look and see the leaves fall and freeze,
Then, oh God, the spring breeze.
Go on—go on.
