Shifting Sun

When Summer Sun is at Her peak,
resplendently She shines,
encouraging a bounty’s fruit
to ripen on the vines.
In Autumn, She’s a gentler queen,
who keeps the snow at bay
and rises later every morn
to tighten up the day.
When Winter comes, She rests a while,
but still keeps careful view
on snow drifts, frost, and icicles,
to know when thaw is due.
When thaw is here and Spring arrives,
She takes a gentle hand
and lends her warmth unto the earth
to wake the slumbering land.
Onwards She toils, from year to year,
no payment as Her due;
retreating when there’s cloudy skies,
and beaming when they’re blue.
