She told him that she loved him
one heated sunny afternoon
in the middle of the summer months
when the sunflowers were in full bloom.
Autumn arrived with falling leaves
coating the sidewalk with sunset red
and she told him she loved him
beneath aged trees that bowed their heads.
Frost visited in the morning
when she told him that she loved him
as the days grew short and the nights grew long
and flakes of white drifted from the heavens.
Snow melted away from soil
to let tulips open with their petals curling in
giving a fresh breath of new spring air
with which she told him that she loved him.
