Change with the Seasons

This poem is dedicated to the San Marcos River in San Marcos, Texas.  I miss it.

Change with the Seasons
Out comes the sun
To smile on the flesh
Of all of these kids
Half grown and half fresh
Lie on the grass
Glide on the water
Try hard to forget
The words of your fathers
Take your time in this world
It's one of a kind
When you leave this place
You leave it behind

Down falls the rain
All over the faces
Wrinkled and stained
By faraway places
Think back to the days
The world really shined
All that you wanted
Was all you could find
Change with the seasons
Save your resistance
Take pleasure in knowing
Your place in existence
