Capital Seasons

In Canberra each season begins with a Capital.

The four bold acts ignore dress-rehearsals.

In the dead-shock deep of winter
the low-swung blue sun effaces.

In the bud-blossom break of spring
the young-fun yellow sun smiles.

In the oven-press high of summer
the bee-stung red sun burns.

In the after-taste still of autumn
the gentle-face gold sun sighs.

This continual role play often draws the curtains
to catch a Canberra citizen
acting out of position.
