Shady Ladies

Ladies in dresses bursting at seams
Are nature’s more mysterious things
Colorful faces paint portraits galore
Since time began they’ve done chores

As dresses Fall down onto the ground
Old Man Winter will show his frown
But he understands why they give away
Bits of themselves throughout the day

It’s so they can shed the old for the new
A fresh garment when Spring is through
In that special season and what it brings
It is great reason to rejoice and sing

Then Summer renewals and rebirthed souls
That bowed with a cross and set new goals
Can lift arms to God and offer up prayers
While new smiling faces draw all the stares
