Came the Cold

Came the Cold
Upon the Day
Frosted meadows
And ice top lakes.

Came not sorrow
Nor cheerful refrain
But chilling breezes
And dull grey skies.

The world does not care
Then awaken...but
The Heavens do not dare.

The darkest birds
The boldest doves
Within the meadows
Await the breeze. . .
To scatter seed.

The boldest dove
Does takes the seed
The darkest bird
Then does feed.

Sleep. . .for
Came the Cold.

Comes the breeze
Over ice top lakes
And frosted meadows. . .
But not with cheerful refrain
But a mournful sorrow.

Then. . .Awaken. . .for
Came the Cold
Upon the Day.

Then so comes
Upon the Heavens
Dull grey skies
Over meadows
And lakes alike.

And descends
From them the Hawk
To the meadow
Upon bird and dove alike
And with a vengence
Upon the breeze
Cries its cry
