Subject(s): Melancholy; Winter; Dejection


It is winter in my garden,
The naked branches of the shrubs
Betray the wounds of
Pruner's knife.

It is winter in my heart,
The ghost of half-remembered fear
Chills to desolation
My spirit.

It is winter in my garden.
The shriveled mummy of a summer's flower is gaunt;
I must remember to give it
Burial.
