The Wheel Turns ... all the words

At last I think I have all the words in place for each of the seasons. Summer has arrived today, a bit early I know ... lol
Summer was the final piece in the jigsaw. Now all I got to do is compose and write the music for it.  I have got some ideas already. :-)

The Wheel Turns

Spring

The waiting is over. The Winter chill recedes and there is a tacit acceptance to the demands of birth and rebirth.
A sign of fresh green poking through the ground is a welcome sight, a simple signal that all will be well.

Very quickly, in a sudden rush, there is life in the hedgerows and the sound of birds heralding a new season.
One of life and growth and warmer days and rainy times, but overall a feeling of hope.

You have longed for this moment, a chance to put away your Winter clothes and feel the sun upon your face again.
The riot of change will continue as the life-giving sun takes longer marches through the sky.

Spring of all seasons is a time to revel in simply feeling alive.

P Goodrich - January 2021

Summer

The days grow longer, the nights shorter, as the golden ball we call the sun parades in all it's glory.
This is a time for living life to the full, a time of happiness, a time of pleasure and excess.

At the solstice, some people still give thanks to the life giving orb upon which we all depend.
For we know this moment cannot last, the majesty will fade, the warmth will falter, the party will end.

With threadbare days and darker nights the proud display of Summer flowers starts to fade.
The heat can be oppressive, at times there is a chill in the air and Nature herself seems finally quiescent.

We will keep those memories of days on the beach or at the park in our hearts forever. Those days of fun.

P Goodrich - April 2021

Autumn

The majesty of Summer has now faded. Leaves, once so green, now a myriad of fading colours as Mother Nature withdraws her life-giving hand.

The weather is changing too. Strong winds and blustery days jostle with times of calm reflection, as you take a little wander through the woods.

The squirrels are busy, as are the birds, as some prepare for darker times whilst others set forth on their migrant flights.

For nature knows, whilst man often forgets, that change is in the air.

P Goodrich - Oct 2020

Winter

As you travel deep into the heart of Winter,life slowly withdraws for a time. Not defeated, just resting for a while.
New life will be reborn as the nights get shorter after the solstice.

But for now, you walk out into it's heart and reflect on the austere beauty this season brings.
Water frozen over and castles made of ice. A fellow traveller hunched against the cold nods as you walk by.

The magic of Christmas quickly fades into the chill of the New Year. A time of renewal and vows of friendship and peace.

Nature is holding it's breath, ready to be be reborn with the light of the sun.

@MrBouzouki - very poetic. How the seasons unfold could depend on your latitude and hemisphere on the planet. Is this a description from the Northern parts, latitude let's say London?

Hi, I was following your project with the seasons and nice you finished so far! :)

I like how you did it!

Last year I'd startetd a similar project with Dutchbeat. Ok, it was not 'season' related more related to the 'sun itself' because i think its all about the sun, the season and the changing....

Unfortunately we did just two 'seasons'..... spring and summer.... the second part  about autum and winter never happend.

But we did a nice song with video and the lyrics , that broke down to the essential of meaning . Thought that fits to your project somehow.


Moon's sister

ever glowing
lovley wheel

sun sun hey, run each day
beauty child
my bright bride

beast eaten
burn up dry

giving birth
return girl

sun sun hey, run each day
beast eaten
burn up dry

sun sun hey, run each day

I look forward to hear the musical interpretation of yours! :) :) :)

@oorlab ... I do in certain bits of text make mention of the temperate seasons of the year, but as usual I'm not consistent.

Quote
This is the second of hopefully four orchestral pieces that describe the four temperate seasons of the year.

I'll make sure it's added in everywhere else now  ::thumb::
