a heat wave in the winter fools us all
we think that maybe something here will last
the rain, the warmth, or something else instead

the warmth and rain, though, vanish with the wind
the springtime isn’t for a while yet
it takes a fool to think that gold can stay

but gold comes back, with sun and heat and life
the flowers bloom; their nectar fills the air
the whole world is at peace now once again

and eyes, as dark and rich as springtime earth
are lively as a garden, smiling, free
and winter never shows its face again
