Winter Is A Small Boat Built For Two, - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Winter is a small boat built for two,
It floats whilst sinking amid the clouds
Just a token shade of blue
But its grey, it’s deliberately cold and bloody.

It’s got lots of battlegrounds really,
And it can put a cold compress around your heart.
And not show you any regret
Sure, winter is a small boat built for two.

It’s an iceberg honey, hold on tight
Because tonight I’m trembling, for you
I’m feeling heavy angel, I aren’t no snow cloud.
I’m just tobogganing round you.

Hoping spring will dissolve and insulate us both,
Loath as I am, I am literally froze
Spring makes us buoyant once more
Oh winter is a small rowboat built for two,
Oh honey warms me to my core!
Oh honey takes an oar
Oh honey warms my flesh my every pore.

Winter is a small boat built for two,
Like Noah’s boat built to rescue lovers two by two.
Winter has a small boat built just for me & you
Winter has a small boat
It’s always just floating above the ground.

Winter is a small boat built for two,
It floats whilst sinking amid the clouds
Just a token shade of blue
It’s something lovers learn to deal with
It keeps their winged feet on the ground.
