it’ll wait five, treacherous full moons,

before dancing with the winter wind.

Sweeping up the scintillating snow.

Then Spring will abruptly leave us,

we’ll, once again, be left with Winter,

and her heart of ruthless ice.

Though, we’ll no longer be scrambling mice.

    I know I’ll never find the words.

    They jumble together,

    like the sunset’s melting colors.

    For every excuse I make,
