What is the taste of summer?
Ice creams and fizzy drinks?
Warm sandwiches and the smell
Of petrol pumped into a campervan?
What is the taste of autumn?
Cotton candy and toffee apples?
Pumpkin pie and the smell
Of dewy grass at a fairground?
What is the taste of winter?
Cherri and warmed mead by the fire?
Holly and the soft smell of mistletoe
Hanging in quiet corners in the night?
What is the taste of spring?
Warmth and honeyed brown toast?
Flowers and the smell of nests
Where new life finds itself?
Alas, we cannot experience them all at once.
