Renewal

Twirling, whirling, leaves descending

Scurrying, hurrying, never-ending

Lifting, drifting, lawn-offending

Piling, defiling, brownish-blending

Plotting, rotting, mildew pending

Sinking, stinking, moisture-lending

Nourishing, flourishing, grass is mending

Growing, showing Nature’s tending

  7. I love the rhyme! I like the image of the initially defiling leaves going on to nourish the growth of the garden, to make it green and lovely as it was.

    A real sense of spring and summer optimism ahead all within the beauty of nature.
