Softly goes


Softly goes the winter night

Turning beneath a star lite sky

icy wind blows upon the land

Chilling those who walk this night

Darkness bares the land of life

They run unto small caves of light

Seeking warm safety there within

Hidden from the star sky

Lonely trees stand the guard

talking softly among themselves

On the endless watch they take

The quiet is louder than any noise

It fills all space

Nowhere to hide

The sun the moon cannot be

Their lights will not fill the sky

And will not come each night to stay

Gather clouds for snow to fall

Changing land from black to white

Hiding much and showing some

All in a cold winter night
