The time has come to restore our life
to find a way free of strife
to profit by the seasons
to abide by all the natural reasons.
The warming spring frees the dormant apple trees
now swarmed by the buzzing bees
crowding into the orchard’s scented air
dispelling all signs of winter’s despair.
We bloom again, waking from deep dreaming,
blossoming with new-found happy meaning.
Like the bees we share the same blooms
with the sweet nectar dispelling our glooms.
We relax with lazy, hazy summer fun
then in the cool and stimulating autumn sun
fed by the crisp sweet apples,
we have renewed our strength and values.
