Winter's Lament

Borne both as a blessing and a curse,

Borne both as a blessing and a curse, Such was Winter's remorseful adverse.

Borne both as a blessing and a curse, Such was Winter's remorseful adverse. Beautiful but pitiful, Only in death she was plentiful.

She had pledged her whole allegiance to Earth,

She had pledged her whole allegiance to Earth, Only to discover that her love had no worth. Earth favoured the lively spring,

She had pledged her whole allegiance to Earth, Only to discover that her love had no worth. Earth favoured the lively spring, Whose dainty presence shone with life's zing.

He sung of her with perpetual appraise;

He sung of her with perpetual appraise; Worshipped her warm, sun kissed days,

He sung of her with perpetual appraise; Worshipped her warm, sun kissed days, He soaked up her tears in loving embrace,

He sung of her with perpetual appraise; Worshipped her warm, sun kissed days, He soaked up her tears in loving embrace, Ever thankful he was for her delicate grace.

Spring gave birth to their endearing children,

Spring gave birth to their endearing children, The proud Earth was their sole father and heaven. They blossomed and bloomed in his nurturing soil, Until Winter came to share her spoil.

Bitter snowflakes swirled with swift extremity,

Bitter snowflakes swirled with swift extremity, Rapidly and erratically; the picture of calamity.

Bitter snowflakes swirled with swift extremity, Rapidly and erratically; the picture of calamity. The weeping tempest stained the silent Earth,

Bitter snowflakes swirled with swift extremity, Rapidly and erratically; the picture of calamity. The weeping tempest stained the silent Earth, As the death of his children buried his mirth.

Half mad with jealousy Winter inflicts pain,

Half mad with jealousy Winter inflicts pain, Upon Earth who holds her with disdain.

Half mad with jealousy Winter inflicts pain, Upon Earth who holds her with disdain. She embraces him with her resplendent snow,

Half mad with jealousy Winter inflicts pain, Upon Earth who holds her with disdain. She embraces him with her resplendent snow, Tries to entrance him with her pure white glow,

Spoils him with her quintessential snowflakes,

Spoils him with her quintessential snowflakes, But in the end Spring does awake.

Spoils him with her quintessential snowflakes, But in the end Spring does awake. Once again Winter is forsaken, forgotten, forbidden.

Spoils him with her quintessential snowflakes, But in the end Spring does awake. Once again Winter is forsaken, forgotten, forbidden. Again, she remains resentfully hidden,

But she'll claim Earth during Spring's next slumber,

And the tragic cycle shall repeat over and over.
