Winter

Winter time, it brings me down
Ice cold winds, snow on the ground
Soon I feel the summer breezes
Watch it as it carefully seizes
Thistle down, send it ’round
Slowly upwards, slowly down
Gently moving, never a sound
Wish that I could hibernate
Go to sleep and never wake
Until the sun comes shining once again

Winter time, it brings me down
Overcoats and scarves thrown ’round
Cold, dark nights, dense wintry gales
Frozen feet in snowy trails
Slowly homeward, trudging through
Wind and rain and hailstorms too
Where’s the sun, I wish I knew

Winter time, it brings me down
Ice cold winds, snow on the ground
Winter time, it brings me down
Overcoats and scarves thrown ’round
