The Year

EACH season, bringing beauty, yields back praise
To its kind God, - the God of all the year!
Nature ne'er flags, but brings fair vernal gear
To deck her sweetest child - young Spring-time days,
And Summer's brilliant garb and golden tress,
Entwined with flowery gems and jewels of dew,
And rich Autumnal robe of blended hue;
Then chastened Winter's frost-bespangled-dress, -
Each in succession beautiful! and each,
To those who learn, this silent lesson teach,
That we, in our estate from youth to age,
Are still beneath the care of Nature's Lord,
And through our life His love will still afford
Pleasures befitting to each different stage.
