Winter turns the spirit out. Leaves go red and fall. Snowy silence sits about. I wonder at it all, But know the proof comes in the spring When leaves and flowers bloom When birds again have warmth to sing And outside’s like a room.

As Philip watched the evening shine With tiny stars to pierce the dark, He felt a cooling calm and peace Then dread turned on his mind to mark With fear that all about his head Were coffin lids to seal the dead.
Then Philip saw how dawn was cast, How darkness bowed and night flew past.
