We met on a sunny day
In a temperamental February
The trees were bare, the leaves had strayed
The sky a bright blue canopy
And so we began – an unnatural spring
Watching the clouds float by

We danced in our spring of make believe
Laughed through the heat of summer
When autumn arrived
I fell with the leaves
My heart as bright as their colors
Inevitably true winter came, dark and melancholy
Still I remember our unnatural spring
Created in youthful folly
