The Cold It Comes

a cemetery covered in snow

The Cold It Comes

the cold, the cold, it comes and goes

it seizes ears and ices your toes

it freezes fingers and chills your bones

the cold, the cold, it comes and goes

it brings the darkness, it sends the snow

it gives the shivers and bites your nose

the cold, the cold, it comes and goes

it pinches cheeks and sets them aglow

it comes in the night to cool your clothes

the cold, the cold, it comes and goes

it’s here and it’s gone, it ebbs and flows

it comes and stays ’til our final throes

then cold, it comes and never goes
