You can see a long way in winter
Through the winter branches
Through the winter branches flows the winter breeze,
Through the winter branches you can see beyond the trees.
Spring may have the blossom, in summer the trees are green,
Autumn many shades of red, but in winter the hills are seen.
Through the winter branches the sun comes to touch the ground,
Through the winter branches the wind carries every sound.
Spring may have the buds, in summer shadows fall below,
Autumn sways the leaves, but in winter the sky’s on show.
Through the winter months the sun travels low across the sky,
Through the winter months the moon and stars are seen up high.
The winter brings a freedom, a distance clarity for tired eyes,
The frost upon the branches as, on and off, the robin flies.
