May What Is Right for Every Season


May what is right for ev’ry season come to you
Bret Hesla © 2015

1. As the lilacs shine in May
And the corn swells in July
As the branches of October sag with apples.
May what is right for every season come to you
And each letting go that follows fall in beauty.

2. As the puppy full of spring
Goes abounding for the ball
Till an old dog stiffly lies beside the rocker …

3. As the mother holds her child
Till the child is up and gone
Then returns to hold the mother in her failing …

4. In the years of quiet loss
In the strangeness left behind
In the longing for those things that never happened
May what is right for ev’ry season come to you
And each letting go that follows fall in beauty
