My Favorite Season: A Poem















What is your favorite season?

The weather of fall is beautiful,

Glorious and bright but

Chilling and crisp.



The colors of fall are brilliant,

Red and orange and

Brown and purple.


Fall is the worst season of the year.

Fall is a season of goodbyes, of packing and

Labeling and stacking boxes.

Fall is a season of tears and uncertainty

And lasts.


Fall is the best season of the year.

Fall is a season of hellos, of fresh starts

And budding friendships and newness.

Fall is a season of beginnings and starting over

And firsts.


2007.

Fall was the worst season of that year.

Fall was the season of goodbye parties, of sorting

And cleaning and leaving.

Fall was the season of tears and uncertainty

And lasts.


2010.

Fall was the best season of that year.

Fall was the season of clean starts, of meeting

And growing and learning.

Fall was the season of beginnings and starting over

And firsts.




2011.

Fall was the best season of this year.

Fall was the season I fell in love.
