At daisies’ bloom, the winter’s gone,
And through the trees a blackbird’s song
Will warm the breeze for lonely ones
To leave their nests and fly along.
 
You draw them near with gilded eyes
That break through clouds to seaward skies
And in control of peaceful minds,
With all their hearts, your beauty lies.
 
But when the summer sun has set,
All those you saw you soon forget,
And fallen, fleeting dreams will rest.
What was once there is no more yet.
 
And then you fear for winter’s toll
For with its snow a cold wind blows
Across your gently shrouded soul
To dig a deeper, deeper hole.
 
You rise from rest to darker day,
But with time passed it melts away.
And pushing warmth far out at bay,
Your frigid mask is here to stay.
 
Dwindled down a rusted drain
And in the traps of blind man’s rein,
You fall through cracks and just the same,
You sniff the tracks of your next game.
The tracks of your next game.
