The ground thaws
And the children dress for summer.
They wear shorts with flaws
And as it is still not warm, they shudder.
But the excitement of spring
Is felt through the air.
Because they know that it brings
Putting out of lawn chairs.
The itching feeling grows more
As school seems to never end.
Craving to get out to the shore
Where they spend all day with friends.
The swealtering weather
We welcome with open arms.
Because we spend each day together
Enjoying everyday without setting alarms.
This time we never want to end
For it is complete and utter freedom.
For a while there is no school to attend
Where we don’t have to feel dumb.
Playing the day away
In the insane heat waves.
At first things were happy and gay
But now to the weather we are slaves.
The girls are ecstatic
To be able to pull out the jeans.
The boys are anti-dramatic
And continue to dress like summer teens.
The introduction of new drinks at Starbucks
And Black Friday deals to add to the celebration.
Everyone is more than willing to shell out extra bucks
All across the entire nation.
It’s still warm enough for a dress now and then
And cute pumpkin patch dates.
Couples are immersed in glorious zen
And it seems they can’t wait to strap on skates.
Snow flitters in the air
Like magical sparkles to set the mood.
Children gather around fireplace flares
Eating cute homemade food.
Enjoying one another’s company throughout the season
Snuggling to keep warm in the frigid cold.
Celebrating the holidays preseason
Never seems to get old.
The colder it gets the more they look forward
To the season change.
It’s already Febuary and they look for more
Being stuck inside all day they feel a bit deranged.
This post was the progressive feelings most people experience throughout the year with each season change.
