Winter whitened the darkened earth
The blinding glare would garish shine
With the glowing embers smoldering in the hearth
The stormy gale desperate would whine
Burying deeper the life that is no more
Pale the lace falls faster, faster
Hiding whatever was there before
Oh Winters Edge! All are succumb to you, Master.
Desperate to keep our lives,
We fall before your hand
Bundled up to warm the insides
None before your bitterness will stand
Oh Winters Edge forsake us here
Leave us alone from your torments
Your frost and white out we very much fear
Rid us of your icy adornments
Bittersweet is your bitter sting
And our toes grow numb at your touch
We pray, we pray, that you will summon Spring
Of your trickery we have had enough.
The fireside is our greatest friend
To keep us from your chill
Your vagrant blasts always rend
The doors wide open with your torturous skill.
