Whitewashed feelings
Nature in disguise
Covered in equality
Brightness to your eyes

Snow man dreaming
Cold man sighs
Icicle feelings
Cutting Autumn ties

Making frozen moments
To add to your life's book
Crisp and sparkling memories
Reflected in your look

Another cycle ending
Natures welcome rest
The freezing of the grasses
And life’s great treasure chest

Winter in its wilderness
With nothing warm to say
Makes its statement chillingly
In the freezing of each day
