When the snow lays down
Still, dark and blue,
Night steps lightly by
As I dream again of you.

Home sounds quiet me–
Surround our love’s signs.
Time grows long and mean
When we must sleep alone.

Your voice, sweet and quiet
Your gentle, kind eyes,
Strong, searching heart all
Softly show Night the door.

Moon shines brighter now.
Moves up higher, too.
Your breath warms the air
That surrounds me in the dark.

Morning blue light shines
Over your sweet face.
And Night steps out
Into the snow without a trace.


(For my Valentine.)
