I like summer, let me just say
I like picnics and the long days.
I like the heat and flowers galore
But there is still one season I like more.

I am quite fond of the fall
Yes, I am a fond fan of football.
I am fond of fall colors and the smells.
But I am fond of another season that excels.

I tolerate winter, I cannot not lie.
I tolerate the snow and I know why.
I tolerate the cold, and having them,
I tolerate it all because in the end--

Winter gives way to something new.
Everything looks fresh with a different hue.
The new blades of grass pushing thru
Buds on trees and the bushes too.

Always think I have another chance,
To make it better in this lifeís dance.
Things that got left undone or unsaid,
Time to set right or let them shed.

Thatís why I love spring!
I love the expectation of the thing.
I love the birds singing their song.
Give me spring all year long!

You established the mood well, and chose a good rhyme scheme. Work on more consistent meter, and this charming poem will really stand out.
