Dust of Her Wings - Poem by Mark Joseph Canoy

Play Poem Video

Wind is so frost and winter's soul I see
Two leaves clinging on a shaking tree
Indeed, the dead body of fall decays
Earth silvers these winter's very days

And an angel grew at winter's heart
That angel glamorous, gay, and smart
Who crowns wreath of stars and has silver wings
Her voice courting everytime she sings

And then we met and fell in love with each
We dance, sing, and laugh beyond our reach
Pine trees dancing, birds sing their symphony
And that winter turns to fantasy

Then she claimed the snow is dust of her wings
And relic of our time; joy it brings
For she said she might go away someday
And that snow will comfort me that day

Eagerly, night grows day and day to night
No leaves on a shaky tree at winter's might
Wind's stirring a melody of sweet noise
Filling the wind with her courting voice

But day has come my angel is sick
She no longer dance, laugh, smile, and speak
All lifting their arms hoping it's a myth
Until next day she no longer breath

And so stopped the voyage of earth and time
But not stopped the snow for winter's fine
Why? Oh! The relic! The joy it brings!
So nostalgic the dust of her wings!
