Playing With Pantoums

WHILE SUMMER SLEEPS

My fingers feel the cold; it settles deep.
The rest of me will surely feel the pain.
I cling to you while summer’s lost in sleep,
Our vanished warmth a struggle to regain.

The rest of me will surely feel the pain
As icy fingers wrap around my heart.
Our vanished warmth a struggle to regain.
Another winter tears our love apart.

As icy fingers wrap around my heart,
I long to feel the heat of your embrace.
Another winter tears our love apart.
Will summer wake and frozen dreams erase?

I long to feel the heat of your embrace.
I cling to you while summer’s lost in sleep.
Will summer wake and frozen dreams erase?
My fingers feel the cold; it settles deep.
