The winter comes late

The exile to much for my heart, to wait

on light of distant stars, to wait on

the first snow: footprints marked –


Long, long the passing

of days, the gate stands unmoved by

warmth of hand, so too my heart

that seeks you where sorrow’s

chamber stands

unbeating – in long hope

of flesh upon my brow: open once more

a season now, of your long night song, sung

beyond gate; behind chamber door

– winter come, come

  once more
