Pearly white skies

as

Winter brings it's fingers down

And plays like no other

You wish for me

Be just for me

&

For warmth not longing

death

not tempting

Waiting with the icicles

Hung still on your porch

You'll lie with me

Watch stars for me

&

But no,

The distant brilliance

knows

the variance of silver, gold

Of quiet deer and stag alone

To echo through silent woods

beam radiance of spring

&

Let my heart fall

far

from hopes so high

Let it be known

I'm no precious prize

Let me waste away

spying ice's symphony

stalking every breath as she breathes

&

Oh Winter play for me,

linger

chance and faith to me.

Unthaw, melt into spring

You can't forget my sting

The frost's not over me
