First I saw you in that morn
On the bony unknown winter branch
Decked with pearly feathery drops
That glittered in the golden light.
Your rusty chest of tiny plumes
Was a fervent flame to snowy doom
In the silent unknown lonely gloom
I called you to my inner room.
Day by day you came and sang
A chorus with your reddish gang
Threw me mirth to dusty light
Where I laid with gloomy eyes.
Once you chirped me in my despair
'Who cursed you out with weird pooh! '
I sensed it out and saw you there
With many a berries in your beak.
She dropped the rubies down and sang
Soothing melodies to my heart
In my soul I bore it long
Still I hear it in my gloom.
I don't know who guided me
To such a distance to meet you sole
Still I believe some unknown Web
Binds us together in this birth!
