` yielding sweetly`

                        

When changing seasons make no sense
still springtime brings to us new snows
yet, somehow, lies, season's recompense
yielding sweetly life's delicate new rose

Still springtime brings to us new snows
then sunlight appears to warm the days
Yielding sweetly life's delicate new rose
blossoming beauties with summer's fine ways

Then sunlight appears to warm the days
breezes whisper thru~lofty trees high
Blossoming beatuies with summer's fine ways
as gentle raindrops fall from heaven's blue sky

Breezes whisper thru~lofty trees high
kissing all nature with a misty morning dew
As gentle raindrops fall from heaven's blue sky
each blade of wet grass, green and renewed

Kissing all nature with a misty morning dew
While behind the scenes,amending a vast expanse
Each blade of wet grass, green and renewed
when changing seasons make no sense

Author's Note

Pantoum:

The lines are grouped into quatrains (4-line stanzas).

The final line of the Pantoum must be the same as its first line.

A Pantoum has any number of quatrains.

Lines may be of any length.

The Pantoum has a rhyme scheme of abab in each quatrain. Thus, the lines rhyme alternately.

The Pantoum says everything twice:

Thanks, Jacob, glad you enjoyed..
You have done a great job of applying the necessary requirements of this poetry form. I'm not a big fan of repeating lines just to follow rules. In this poem, the effect is a little mixed up, to my reading. Thus, the first & last lines are more appropriate to me, than perhaps you've planned for this write. It feels like the seasons are all mixed up, thru-out the flow of this piece. But everything is stated very creatively & gently, bringing much imagery & soft imaginings as one reads along.

A peaceful view of the changing seasons, the repetition makes me feel the sunshine and the light breeze.
