Old Man Winter, where to begin
How I wish I could take your sense of wit on the chin
Another season of darkness and whimsical starkness
Wrapped up in your icy grin

Your blanket of sleep tries to comfort me
Bring hope that I'll wake again
This time of relief from the sun's great heat
In your mercy is a gift to me

Old Man Winter there you are again
It seems just like yesterday we spoke at length
I'll learn to like you in the end
As I always do when I get over these blues

If truth be told even though you're bold
There's a gentleness in your touch
Although I've complained there are times you take my breath away
And if you left for good I'd miss you so much

Some may say I'm brave
Don't let me slip away
Some may find it strange
To long for another time and place

Mister Winter seems we're out of time
Once again you've inspired verse and rhyme
For all the grief, the joy, your visits bring
You humbly exit the stage once you've opened for Spring


from Old Man Winter, released November 11, 2011
