Find Me

Find me——
My winsome friend;
Search me out,
While the weather’s fine.

Oh!——
Sweet mint julep 
Drunk madly in the month of May,
When Springtime’s at play,
And all the world is standing up to see——
Horses running.

Their hooves knocking dirt,
And dust and us around:
              Makes time stand still,
                  Makes everything stop——
             If but for an instant,
Then unwind into a slow drizzle.

(That’s springtime for ya doll face;
     That’s soul for ya sweetheart.) 

Heart of my heart,
Yet unseen,
Catch me——
My winsome friend;
Search me out,
Before the weather worsens.

Look!—-
Leaves drip down tall trees
Landing in piles,
Covering lovers’ faces,
Smothering the breath of life—-
     I ——
            Am ——
                       Restricted.

Hold on!—-
To what?
( I ask myself.) 

Belly up,
           Bottoms down,
Dress trussed,
            Hair mussed,
Lips pursed,
            And emotions cursed:
I fall into oblivion—-
           Feeling——
                  Cold.

(It must be snowing somewhere.)

I feel flakes touch my cheek—-
Winter is already here,
Paying me a visit
Transforming my heart to ice;
Slowly chilling me to the bone.

I don’t suppose,
I can be reached
While in this ice castle?
Nope?
         No sirre?
                      Not me.
                                Not—-
                     Ever?

(Well,
  You’ve swung and missed ya priss;
       Taken too damn long—-
          Cut up birds songs and left them out to languish.)

Why not rescue me?——
Find me——
My winsome friend;
Search me out,
Save me from the coldest Season.

Oh! —-
Spring’s on the horizon;
The Snow Queen could be thwarted,
And I could be yet unfrozen,
If you’d try to find me——

Find me——
My winsome friend;
Search me out,
Rescue me from my cocoon, 
And love me before I’m doomed—-
For it’s cold outside,
And I haven’t got any jacket on.
