Asked him What it was,
that seemed to have Disturbed him so.
He Stuttered and Explained
that it Bothered Him
to Watch the Summer Breezes Muss her Hair,
to see the Autumn's brilliant Reds and Golds
Reflected in her Eyes,
the Kiss of Winter on her Cheek.
He said, in Truth, that the Seasons themselves
had given him Cause to Envy.
It was the Way they seemed to Touch her Life
It was the Way he Never had
and Never could.
