Dream Away the Grey

I look outside at the

Grey skies

Brown grass

And bare trees

Closing my eyes I dream of

Green grass

Lush trees

And a myriad of flowers blooming

Opening my eyes I spot

A tree with buds

The tips of a tulip

And the sun starting to shine

Spring is coming

It is not just a dream

The tress across the river

Were painted in shades

Of red, yellow and orange

Creating a picture

Of a paradigm of Autumn

Reminding us too

That winter is on the way

The winds blow harder

Shaking the trees

Day after day

Until the branches are bare

And the first snowflake falls
