The State of Spring

To be interested in the changing seasons,
is a happier state of mind
than to be hopelessly in love with spring;

although….

What hope does winter offer to counter the loneliness of things dying?

Which fresh life does summer bring to beauty already wrought?

What solace can be found in the ageing of autumn?

How can mere interest counter love;
the beating of one heart against another;
the joy in a shared breath;
the warmth of another’s bed?

Artist's Description

This is a quote from George Santayana, (the first paragraph), a favourite of mine, but combined with too much drink and depressed thoughts
