The earth spins on its axis once every 24 hours. This gives day to the side of the earth that is turned toward the sun and night to the side that is turned away from the sun.
As the earth orbits the sun, the days change in their length and temperature. Thus we notice the seasons fall, winter, spring and summer. Most people love springtime the most.
Here is a poem to tell why.
THE SIGNS OF SPRING
Easter lilies are in full bloom
As young men think of love.
Women can feel passion within
As they view the nesting dove.
Spring hangs her blossoms on the trees
Though winter's moss is dry and dead,
As their sweet scent invades the air,
Blades of grass raise their head.
Spring will soon vanish with the rose
And summer shall scorch earth again.
Daughter of heaven, mother of all,
Spring's loved by both women and men.
The signs of spring are for all to see,
Letting the world know that nature sleeps no more.
As she awakens from her long winter nap,
Living shoots of life sprout forth from before.
The robin can be seen hunting for a meal,
As the gentle breezes urge the budding trees.
Soon fragrant blossoms will burst open with bloom
Attracting the eyes of creatures and bees.
Gone till next year, are winters cold days of chill,
While the fever of love hits the ground on the run.
There's heavenly splendor wherever we look,
As earth is warmed by the rays of the sun.
