The Birth of a New Year

The splendour

Of the season

Is gone

The tree

Left

To rot

Upon its rusting

Stand

A reminder

That 2020

Will

Soon

Be

Taken down

Boxed up

Put away

The past gone

A brighter future

Within reach

Within reason

This season

A poem I wrote for vss365 on Twitter today. The word prompt today is splendour. I made the animated image on Canva. 😁
