Spring's Fell Bloom - Poem by David Zvekic

Beyond the valley far below,
Where glory of a spring's fell bloom
Did flourish as wild flowers know
Such music heard from lovers' room: -
Past autumn's warmth did hearts disease;
When gentle Halcyone's wings set soar,
To sing of tender happiness on seas,
'Twas only songs from loves before.
So pale the snows, did reason warn,
Harsh winter's cloak; past depth of world,
Could but such melody keep warm
The howling wind against love's cold.
Spring swells though season's tears still dry,
Embankments left these rivers fast,
That loose ends should on rapids fly
From love that didn't last.

    in Greek mythology, daughter of Aeolus and wife of Ceyx. When her husband drowned, Halcyone threw herself into the sea. Out of pity the gods changed the pair into kingfishers or halcyons, and Zeus forbade the winds to blow seven days before and after the winter solstice, the breeding season of the halcyon.
