Far beyond her prime, no longer fresh and alive with the new green of springtime
Gone are the days where she danced, dressed in vibrant colors under a hot summer sun
and the rich hues she once wore in celebration of autumn’s splendor have now paled
But even in the winter of her life, as she lingers in the dim lighting of dappled shadows, she is still lovely
And on the gentle breeze she serenades us with quiet whispers
of her faded beauty.
