The seasons teach us patience
They begin in December with winter
Snow covered cedars make us smile
But the white roads mean we must go slower
And share our paths in order to survive the drive we are making.
Next March brings us the start of Spring
Gentle breezes begin to show a change in wardrobe
But mud puddles grow and slush is ever present
Making us readjust our path to get to the car door.
Summer shows her glowing face in June
School is out and children shout with joy
Extra-long lines of traffic as people clamour to leave the city
Everyone loaded down with hampers and sunscreen for the beach.
Autumn joins us in September
Beautiful leaves decorate the deciduous trees
Nights begin to get cooler
As parents and students look at homework together
Then the cycle begins again.
