My Time

My Time

A Poem by G. K. Bostic

A Swap Quatrain

As spring arrives with birds in flight,
I'm rescued from long winter night.
A new day dawns, and new life thrives
With birds in flight as spring arrives.

My spirit soars with joyful heart
As winter coats of fur depart,
And freely I can go outdoors
With joyful heart my spirit soars.

Long summer days, time to relax
Smell sea and sand and surfboard wax
Refreshing me, clearing the haze...
Time to relax, long summer days.

As autumn comes and leaves will fall
A lovely time 'fore winter's call,
I savor days before cold numbs,
And leaves will fall as autumn comes.

With winter's hold my wait begins
For spring's relief to come again.
So as I just endure the cold,
My wait begins with winter's hold.
