Life's Seasons



Birth- The Sunrise on a Spring Day
When all is Fresh and New,
A Being of a Long and Full Life.

Youth- The Midmorn Sun in the Summer of Life
Free and Careless to Grow and Learn,
on the Ever-Growing Path.

Middle-Age-The Sun at High Noon in the Fall of Life
A Time of Slowing Down and Questioning
the Where, the What, and the Why
Of a Life that is Half Passed By.


Old-Age -The Sun in Late Aft'noon in the Winter of Life
When the Chill of the Air,and the Bone Appear
A time of Looking back on Life's Long Path.


Death- The Sunset of a Winter's Day
An Ending in Peace and Quietness,
Life is like the Seasons,
After Winter comes the Spring.





In Extremis


Death, a coming and a going,
A time of sorrow and of joy.

A time of sorrow for love ones
Who are left behind.

A time of joy in Heaven
For one who has come Home.


Those I wrote way back in my high school days. i thouhgt I'd share them with my celted brother and sisters.

And I'm glad you did. smile.gif

High School? You knew what it felt like to be middle aged in high school? Seems you must have been a perceptive one. cool.gif You really nailed what it is like. Slowing, questioning and the realization - if we're lucky - life is half over.

Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.

how can it be called progress?

Here's one of my favorite "old ones"
"Corpus Christi Carol"

He bear her off, he bear her down
He bear her into an orchard ground
Lu Li Lu Lay
Lu Li Lu Lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

And in this orchard there was a hold
That was hanged with purple and gold
And in that hold there was a bed
And it was hanged with chords of red

Lu Li Lu Lay
Lu Li Lu Lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

And on this bed there lyeth a knight
His wound is bleeding day and night
By his bedside kneeleth a maid
And she weepeth both night and day

Lu Li Lu Lay
Lu Li Lu Lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away

By his bedside standeth a stone
Corpus Christi written thereon

Those vocables are familiar, but I can't recall from where. I won't pretend that I can place if you are quoting a poem from somewhere or if it's genuinely original (I'll assume the latter given context). It's pretty, and reads well in either case smile.gif

Oops--well I certainly wasn't claiming those were my words...I thought I saw something posted elsewhere in this forum which just shares a known (already written) poem...is is rule that it has to be our own words? Just thought I would share a poem/lyrics that were just lovely, no matter what the source. king.gif

No rule that the words you post have to be yours. However, most people only tend to post their own here. It's always a good idea to list whose words you're posting if they're not yours smile.gif

They say that the distance forgets the deepest love
but I dont forget you
although they remove you from the world...




this frase was dedicated to me by a special friend... thank you
