Trees salute in grand motif
Apart from one- curbside
Springtime; he had not one leaf
And many thought he'd died
His peers all casting shadows
Long before he studded jade
Limping on, unnoticed
Hidden well beneath their shade
Solar rays intensified
His SPF sunscreen
Thus, he began to freckle
Subtle hints of varied green
As summer days grew longer
- Time fell back an hours length
This little guy grew stronger
While the others lost their strength
‘Til jaundice fell among them
And a breezy wind disrobed
what once resembled stateliness
- stripped like Bible Job
He remained crowned at the top
Throughout the season- Autumn
His comrades- not so fortunate
Their crowns lay at their bottom
Soon, his jewels- like mood stone
Had, themselves, begun transforming
Vibrancy had morphed into
A hue- likened to boring
He mimicked, still, a noble palm
Erect and thinly clothed
Until the nip of winter hit
And just like that- he froze
But, Springtime came around again
And this time- he was ready
Ahead of those he once had trailed
Leader, now, to many.

This is a beautiful poem. Mine couldn't hold a candle to it. It needs punctuation but I'm not skilled enough to suggest how it should be done. Bertie Patano
Good tempo I love the imagry of: ‘Til jaundice fell among them And a breezy wind disrobed what once resembled stateliness - stripped like Bible Job
This poem almost seems like a personification as it resembles us in our efforts to bloom and fruit in life. Good poem.
Great fun! I like this! Some great rhymes and rhythm.
