your endless spring was sung legato
warm rushing winds upon your back
and vibrant lines - they stretched unending
blue Prussian dreams would turn to black

your sullen summer came staccato
something slowed refulgent skies
and melodies - they ceased ascending
finite rhythms shrink and sigh

and then you cross the shadow line
our thumbs and toes are tied by twine

once silent squalls arrive, then, reaching
their bellowing calls break out, beseeching
stalking starry flaglit ships creep beaching

withered winter cut some slack
on this transient dionysiac.
