Time to Go

by Wayne Scheer

Like a performer
whose act runs long,
Mr. Winter needs to be given
the old-fashioned hook.

There was a time,
back when Ms. Summer
sizzled, when too much of a good thing
seemed too much,
and I looked forward
to a cooler performance.

But Mr. Winter has gone
from cool to cold. We've seen
enough of his act;
it's time to give the child Spring
her chance to shine.

So if anyone is really in charge here,
I pray of you:
cue the music, drop the curtain;
it's time for a scenery change.
