about

At the hospital gates there were cars at wait
But the sad bookworm girl was gone
And the ivy that framed the window-pane it whispered
To the idiot prodigal son
Said, ‘The winter always gets it’s girl …’

He held her ledgers close inside his winter coat
And murmured his encomiums
Stayed at home Christmas that year and made a wish on
A girl insufficiently young
Said, ‘The winter always gets its girl, and the year has come and gone …’

Come on come on, they’re waiting at the stations for us
With handwritten signs that say ‘Hearts Heal on Long Distance Buses’
Come on come on, they’re waiting by the rivers for us

Though she said she knew those crying jags out by the frozen lake would pass
All she could think of was tracks
Said, ‘We all go out for cigarettes sometimes
And only sometimes come back …
We will have summer barbecues out here again and good times too
And some redress for these lacks
But we all go out for cigarettes sometimes
And only sometimes come back …’
The winter always gets its girl and the year has come and gone

Come on come on, they’re waiting at the stations for us
With handwritten signs that say ‘Hearts Heal on Long Distance Buses’
Come on come on, they’re waiting by the rivers for us

Come on come on, they’re waiting at the stations for us
With handwritten signs that say ‘Hearts Heal on Long Distance Buses’
Come on come on, they’re waiting by the rivers for us
