In this Writing 101 assignment we were to write a comparison and contrast piece and with the twist of it being in the form of a dialogue. So, that is what I tried to do in this next piece of poetry. I wrote another one similar to this last year in which I compared and contrasted winter and summer. I hope you enjoy reading and that it may brighten your day.
I like Autumn, I like Spring
“I like autumn”
“Well, I like spring”
“What’s so great about autumn?”
“Well, what’s so great about spring?”
“In Autumn, you can take walks and enjoy the cooler weather.
You can also smell the woodsy fragrance as the leaves change color.”
“In Spring, you can stroll beneath the warming sun and feel the milder breeze.
You can also see hints of new life, new green grass, and buds on the trees.”
“In Autumn you can watch and enjoy the beauty of the changing hues;
You see deeper green, pale yellow, vibrant red and brilliant orange too.”
“In Spring you see new plants and many kinds of blooming flowers;
You see daffodils, violets, lilacs, daisies, and tulips of almost every color.”
“Well, yes, but in the spring you also worry about heavy rain, tornadoes,
Lightening, destructive thunderstorms, and damaging hail.”
“Well yes, but also in autumn you must prepare for what arrives later;
Freezing temperatures, snow, sleet, and ice with the arrival of winter.”
“I supposed that is all true, but I still enjoy autumn more than spring
When the last of the fields are harvested and we celebrate Thanksgiving.”
“Well, I will always enjoy the season of spring more than autumn
When we celebrate Easter; the glorious day of Jesus’ victory and resurrection.”
