The Fading of Winter
Walk slow with me towards our winters release;
Lifes odyssey will in eternal hope
Make true the pass of Us ‘Neath lovers skies in peace;
Yet hearts destined for Heavens elope,
Shall dance through the daffodils of springs rebirth
And traverse the angry but ‘oft serene rivers,
Ease in time to shy streams with summer’s sunny flirt
With hot days to conjure winter shivers.
As autumn leaves in dreamscape flurry,
In too short a time blow from trees and land
On snowy banks in my ancient memory, I hurry,
To catch the skeletal leaf of youth in my hand.
You’re my eternal summer and the fire in my heart;
But spring and summer one day have to part.
