Where Winter Keeps

Her heart her every tear it shed / Their glitter burned in him instead

1st Era. Ending
Mirror Fantasy

Where Winter keeps, the day is dim
Remembrance has forgotten him
The icy circle circumscribed
Has blood and poetry imbibed
Palatial realm of hope bereft
Despair is on his frozen breath
Forget his eyes and turn away
Lest sorrow keep escape at bay

The Queen of Heaven, that heated sun
Danced with him when both were young
Her heart her every tear it shed
Their glitter burned in him instead
The fleeting kiss, the passage of
A woman knowing how to love
She took her fire, took her pain
They say it will not live again

Where Winter keeps, he lived that day
Before she took the sun away
Where Winter keeps, he shudders now
And breaks with snow the harvest bough
When darkness comes, we flee the night
He stamps his feet and snuffs the light
Where Winter keeps, he cannot stay
Take joy; she will come back one day
