Seasons

Seasons Change
by: Kathryn Oglesby Douglas Joelsen

Seasons
Days bright and cool
Shortened daylight hours
Nature's signal for subtle change
Color

Native legend says
Hunters in the sky killed the
Great bear each autumn
Dripping his blood on

The earth, turning leaves deep red
Roasting bear meat from
A celestial kettle
Turning other leaves yellow
