Purple mist

Veils the lonely forest

Shades of bronze

Scattered forlorn leaves

Whisper winter’s secret.


Glowing golden love

Taste the scent of crimson

The silence of trust

For all is laid bare

Whisper winter’s secret.


Amber Ocean

Dancing beads of forgiveness

Curtain lonely fields

As psalms of desire

Whisper winter’s secret
