Poems about summer - An Eternal Summer

An Eternal Summer - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

frozen chill landscape
sapping warmth lust rut life
leeching nutrients in brain
eating into marrow of bones

rivers streams lakes
entombed in ice age
continents stretch
weight white bound

too long too long perpetual winter …
generations gone never ending ice…

birds migrate before chill winter sets in...
temporal species die hibernation appeals...

sleep on sleep on slumber in dormant stasis...
live off reserve body fate reduce pulse metabolism...

people also move to warmer or tropical climes
when cold and loneliness bite too deep
spring is a season of growing sap rising rebirth
birds fly follow the eternal summer sun
