The h2g2 Poem: A Year of Disorder

A Year of Disorder

I met you in the waning Fall

And walked with you through Summer.

I blamed you as the warming air

Breathed life to blossoms gathered.

You showed me that the snow can melt,

That there new flow'rs are sown.

We walked through meadows green and lush

And saw where things were growing.

I thought, then, it was due to you

That nature put on colours bright.

I saw in you the reason for

The stars to shine at night.

But when the Winter ends, it shows

The transience of life,

For Fall and Spring and Summer pass,

Display eternity's white lie.

So at the end of summer fair,

Though to me the colours were still new,

The Autumn came, and that's the last

I ever saw of you.

Though you buried me in Winter snows,

I know that all things fade.

Spring blossoms with no guiding hand.

You were ever just a shade.

I see now that the Summer lives

Within my very soul,

And without you to guide my steps,

I'd have found it after all.

"Through dangers untold

And hardships unnumbered,

I have fought my way here to the castle

Beyond the goblin city

To take back the child you have stolen.

For my will is as strong as yours,

And my kingdom is as great.

You have no power over me."

– The Labyrinth
