Poetry: Winter Song

Winter Song
–Aaron Kramer
From Wicked Times

     Under a willow
     close by a brook
     her lap for a pillow
     her eyes for a book

     she like a drummer
     practiced her art
     all spring and all summer-
     the drum was my heart.

Hear how the willow sighs to the sun:
It is over and done with, over and done!
Hear the cold brook, that can hardly run:
It is over and done with, over and done!

     Under what maple
     lose by what lake
     will she lie next April?
     Whose heart will she break?
