I am reading this poem at Nana's funeral on Tuesday. Isabel is pictured here with my Grandpa, my Mum (in arms) and Uncle.

“The Fifth Season.”

The first season is the Spring of life.
In the flower of youth, everything is bright and new.

In the summer of life, time of growth and change
Each day brings new dreams to pursue.

In the Autumn of life, there’s settling down;
Contentment and sureness in what we do.

In the winter of life, comes peace and wisdom,
Time to relax, and reminisce too.

But with the passing of these seasons
Life is still not done, not through,

For there is yet another season

When each spirit is renewed.

And it is in this fifth new season,
In this hopeful second Spring
A time of cleansing and rebirth
A time of new awakening.

Each person’s life will come full circle,
Even as the seasons do.
To start another, different life,
Much better that the one we knew.


  1. Its a very beautiful poem.

    I'm sorry to hear the sad news about your Nana. My dear Nan also lived to 91. Its quite a remarkable age isn't it?

    May Tuesday bring you comfort and fond memories.

  2. Miss M,

    What a lovely and loving poem I'm sure where ever her soul is she will love knowing you are able to take comfort in the poems words.

  3. What beautiful words... and such a fitting poem for your Nana's funeral.

    It is wondeful that she lived to such a great age, but it's always sad when someone we love so much passes away.
