In springtime frost cascades in gutters as

a thousand falling tears of shifting stone might fall



when fleeting restoration has

in blushing flesh ensconced the sterile bone.

This flesh will melt like snowflakes into dust

such fragile microcosms must collapse --

But even ancient forests will combust

and grow froim fragile shoots as ages lapse

the changing drifts of conttinents are seen

to bounce, in slow eternal cycle's eyes;

Cavorting contellations all careen

In steady circles through the inky skies...

Such eternal cycles are never through;

Through all our changes I'll always love you.
