Poem: 'Tug of Seasons'

'This day when white tries to cover gold.'

Snowflakes coming down

Gently upon the colored ground

Falling on trees of gold

A vision to behold

Two seasons


Playing tug of war

Who will win

The call of winter

Or that of fall

This guest

Who came by surprise

When fall tries to hang on

Not giving into snow


As fall and winter mix

This day when white

Tries to cover gold

This novel is gently respectful and real, not overly blunt, and soft enough so that you'll land unhurt at the end. It's a little predictable, too, but comfortably so.
