You get burst banks and pretty lilies,
broken umbrellas and sumptuous potatoes.

You get grazing mosquitoes and sizzling sun, 
insect repellent and thick cream on your warm skin.

You get foreign flus and fresh air, 
dry skin and crunchy leaves beneath your feet.

You get slush after the snowman and the angels,
perpetual nights and new takes on Christ’s birth.

The seasons change and the cycle remains
there is light, there is darkness,
in light, bask and have your fill
in darkness, slow down, wrap up, make tea
and prepare for light.
