Natural Order

Thanks to schopSCAD for the photograph.

the garden grows too short in summer years
and leans too tall in softened rains of spring
though not at all in winters undamp’d cheer
in harvest time the crops are crowned the king

the daylight pride is work — to toil hard
when fam’ly’s fed and healthy as an ox
the night is there for lovers silent bard
to move in quick as would the cunning fox

alas a drought will rob the soils furled
as well the flood will wash away the crops
by sun, a fires lit to ravage worlds
and night brings frost which none alive may stop

this cycle is a nat’ral order though
through which our world does endless ebb and flow
