In Your Absence


Sun would shine flowers will bloom
Bees may fly for nectar
Winds will blow - clouds will flow
Rain may fall down harder
Birds will chirp - squirrels will jump
Things be fine with nature
While the world's move on -The clock ticks by
I'd be stoned and alone no wonder……

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
