Winter Dawn
by [?]

GREEN star Sirius
Dribbling over the lake;
The stars have gone so far on their road,
Yet we’re awake!

Without a sound
The new young year comes in
And is half-way over the lake.
We must begin

Again. This love so full
Of hate has hurt us so,
We lie side by side
Moored–but no,

Let me get up
And wash quite clean
Of this hate.–
So green

The great star goes!
I am washed quite clean,
Quite clean of it all.
But e’en

So cold, so cold and clean
Now the hate is gone!
It is all no good,
I am chilled to the bone

Now the hate is gone;
There is nothing left;
I am pure like bone,
Of all feeling bereft.
