June 30th in Wisconsin

by Jim Rapp

Time was when Winter was winter
and Summer was summer;
when Spring and Fall would inter-
weave their slimmer
selves between
their larger brothers,
hoping to be seen
as something other;
sisters dressed for a ball –
green for sister Springtime,
reds and golds for sister Fall –
each one, one of a kind.

It appears, this year
all are confused;
each seems to bear
their sibling’s face bemused.
Is it something we have done
that is causing this confusion?
Is there something to be done
to right the situation?
I want my seasons
to arrive and leave on schedule
and not be given silly reasons
to excuse their breaking rules.
