Peace in the World

by Max Carlson

Spring is here at last
after that long winter sleep.
The flowers bloom
pretty as a picture.
Then summer is here
when the sun burns hot
And everything is
green and growing.
Then fall is here
and the trees go back to sleep.
Winter comes again and the snow
falls gently to the ground.
Spring. Summer. Fall. Winter.
The end.
