Seasons Memorial Garden

The American Fork Seasons Cemetery got its name from the John Keats poem, "The Human Seasons." The garden includes various sections symbolizing different seasons to honor the seasons American Fork residents may pass through in their lives.

The Seasons Memorial Garden features a steel sculpture of two clasped hands titled the Statue of Responsibility, created by sculptor Gary Lee Price. The statue is one of the first of many versions of the statue that will be placed across the country signifying unification as a part of the Responsibility Foundation.


The Human Seasons 


Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;

There are four seasons in the mind of man:

He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear

Takes in all beauty with an easy span:

He has his Summer, when luxuriously

Spring's honied cud of youthful thought he loves

To ruminate, and by such dreaming high

Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves

His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings

He furleth close; contented so to look

On mists in idleness—to let fair things

Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook.

He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,

Or else he would forego his mortal nature.
