Not good.

Reason:

岁月不居 -- "The years do not stand still" isn't as good as "time stops for no one." Only time can stand still, and not "the years" in common usage.

时节如流 -- Here you are talking about the seasons and not time.  So it is not good to say "time flows on like a river."  Your first version "the seasons keep changing" is much closer to the original meaning and well positioned to be contrasted with "time stops for no one."

butong butong.

No verb used in "seasons always alter as river flowing."

You really need to go back to study the basics in English grammar.

Your reply is funny for which  I can't help laughing!
You intended to make fun of me!
Seasons alter like the river runs to the east sea in Chinese!
In strict grammar rules, ‘Seasons alter as river flows.’  But I thought ‘flowing‘ is better  than ‘flows' since the first is more fitable on this occasion through which we emphasize time is flying all the time!

(I think you are native Chinese, right?)
