the song of the end (of winter)

come
to me
I am your singer

I am your song

it has been
a long winter

come
raise your eyes

sing
with me

yes
it’s been a long winter

rain

rain
there has been snow

sing
sing with me

such a weighty burden
of weariness
fell
with each fresh coating
of new frost

come along
lift your head

all I want
is to sleep
is to slumber on
through the grey

all through
the short light
that is winter

now
this bird

sing

raise yourself
into the new light
and sing

this chirping bird
sings of light
and sun
that is come again

a resurrection
of
spirit

sing

I will sing

sing along

sing along
with you

perhaps
that was the last
of old winter

the bird

sing …

sing …

the bird
perhaps
is more aware

perhaps it knows
more than me

more than me

sing along

goodbye
old winter
