The Mind's Well

Oh, the wintry days
The heavens morrows
Those ice-cold flays
The widows sorrows

That pound upon us
night and day
unmercifully
and without pay.

Do not throw
your coins to beggars
for will those beggars
throw them back?

Do not cast your soul
to thieves
for thieves corrupt,
their morals lack

Instead your coins
spend wisely.
And your soul
keep well.

Store it safely
where no one may take it
in your heart
or your minds well.
