Snowballs

The snowballs come
The grizzly bears look up

A sledge upon these feet
Armed with a fur of wisdom
Finds edges to glide between
foxes rushing down in hunger
in these round furs of snow

A courage upon this heart
Armed with a fur of steel
Turns those grizzly bears around
back, on timid bones of fear
By a will, in round furs of fire

The snowballs come
The grizzly bears look up

A heart upon your mind
Held in furs of pity
Find these feet frozen
buried into the tongues
Of foxes in snowballs

A mind upon your heart
Held in furs of vanity
Finds these bones grow
into flesh, held no more
Lying in wait, for those bears

The snowballs, now they come
The bears grizzly, now they wait
Giving pain, to wade through
In a life held in furs, unworn
