“All Winter Long …”

All winter long
behind every thunder
guess what we heard!
–behind every thunder
the song
of a bird,
a trumpeting bird.

All winter long
beneath every snowing
guess what we saw!
–beneath every snowing
a thaw
and a growing,
a greening and growing.

Where did we run
behind gate and guardsman?
Guess, if you can!
–all winter long
we ran
to the sun,
the dance of the sun!

– Native American Song
