In spring, I planted some plants,
Protected it from flies and from ants,
Watched it grow turn greener each day,
Making sure it is well, not gone astray,
Then came summer and the plant was strong,
Its leaves even greener its stem firm and long,
Flowers and seeds have started to show,
Multiplying by the day yet growing slow,
As the days became shorter and cooler,
The green became weaker, leaves less fuller,
In the autumn chill, the leaves have shrivelled,
Reddish and yellow stains, edges wrinkled,
Flowers have fallen off, proud stem bowed,
Winter soon here snow and ice, white shroud,
Some will wake up to next summer’s warm rays,
Others gone for good numbered were their days,
