Summer Man In Winter - Poem by Bob and Alex Eichen

This poem written by Alexander Eichen

I knew a summer man in winter
With hair of gold and eyes of silver
And where he walked the sun grew dimmer
I knew a summer man in winter

In the month just past December
The summer man withdrew forever
We hadn't spoke since-can't remember
In the month just past December

I knew a summer man in winter
And when the snow drops slow and tender
I see his eyes in the falling glimmer
I knew summer man in winter
