With 10 million strokes
Jack Frost has covered
everything in jewels.

With 10 million strokes
the reflecting lake has painted
the face of the lion
who came to her shores.

With ten million strokes the
morning sun has painted all purple..
then he changed his mind
and with 10 million more
painted all pink and gold
and saffron.

And with 1 continuing
presence he has by eminent
domain taken Jack Frost's
jewels.

He does not need ten trillion
keys.. for all the icelocks
.. His presence is enough
all doors to unlock.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
