As summer fades to grey,

Autumn brings its dampened chill.

Across the glade two figures lay,

huddled 'mongst the frozen daffodils.

One lies broken winged; in grief,

for from the ground she cannot rise.

The other keeps her warm—safe—

from her, never lifts his eyes;

Cannot forsake his mate,

he will not lose this love.

So stays as the frost abaits,

and songs sound above.

    The love in this ode reaches the heart and stays - -- mated for life birds such as these linger with other long after death.
