solstice

see there, the frost in eden tonight
and dreams long shaken from the tree
a soil in ruin and funereal white
cold death come upon heart’s lea

a hope so driven, the fleeting kite
i’m lost in sleet and fury cloud
vain, flecked in thunder light
drawn inside the winter shroud

i’m holding on to symmetry’s name
does life abound above the dome?
all fear and wonder in the flame
put your burning in my bones

consider the hidden sun over night
sense the unquenched fire in snow
great ember, thaw my lips aright
dash to ashes my former woe

i’m holding on to symmetry’s name
does life abound above the dome?
a distant star called like home
put your burning in my bones
