Far Away, Long Ago

Far away, long ago
Glowing dim as embers,
Figures dance gracefully.

Across my memory,
I see them dance
Horses prancing in
A silver storm.

Painted wings, things
I almost remember,
Once upon a December.

Far away, long ago
Figures dance across
My memory.

I see the face of a
Woman, holding her
Safe and warm.

Far away, long ago
Things I yearn to remember,
Someone sings:

Once upon a December.
