    The Tear
    By Darkkin

    It came down, swirling round
    Whispering in her ears.
    Words of wisdom
    No cynic ever hears.

    With a cloak and icy breath
    He came snow, hiding the tears.
    She with hair unbound,
    The breath of springtime in her tender years.

    Old Man howled, a frigid tantrum cast
    When that whisper he did hear.
    For it was she, this breath of spring
    She, this child, he did fear.

    Hair of flame, a sweet song of longing
    Eyes fixed upon the veil, cold and sheer.
    Snow and ice, the whole world round.
    A gentle touch, a snowflake's tear.

    Softly, deftly...A sylvan touch.
    Her herald the Zephyr's wings, she does hear.
    By drip and torrent the snows fell away.
    Leaving a brook, brimming and clear.

    Old Man Winter, a broken hold...
    He nods, surrendering for the year.
    That whisper that gave her hope.
    The murmur of wisdom in her ear.

    From the cold lips of a boy...
    Who had seen her single, speaking tear.
    Jack, the artist of the Frost...
    A gift, for the Aster he holds so dear.
