In the dead
Of Winter,
I long for Spring.
 
In the rains
Of Spring,
I long for Summer,
Hot, lazy days.
 
In the heat
Of Summer,
I long for Autumn,
Cool evenings, hills
Dripping with color.
 
In the buzz
Of Autumn,
Perhaps it is
The silence of
Winter,
That I need,
For this spirit to rest.

This is beautiful too. Although, right now, I believe I will never wish for winter again. As long as I live.
