Soon the days will grow shorter
and the evening will come fast
I’ll sit here by the fire
to warm in its cast.

Soon the night will fall
the light will go away
just as you have done–
you never meant to stay.

Soon as sure the winter
will return to my heart
and once again I’ll be here
lonely in my hearth.
