More on love

Still on the theme of love (must be the time of year), here's one I wrote when I took part in a Wintereisse recital during a Schubertiade weekend at Rhosygilwen.


When the sun rises over frosted hills,
when glaciers thaw,
when frozen streams flow again,
and spring flowers open;
when the birds sing
and fly free;
when I stand on the frozen beach,
when I travel across the cool sea;
when the south wind fills my sails,
when music follows on the breeze,
when moonlight shows the way
to friendlier oceans;
when the stars guide my soul
to warmer shores,
when I find you there,
then, only then, will my heart melt.
