I DREAMED OF SNOW ON SILENT FEET






SNOW BY LOREENA McKENNITT




I Dreamed of Snow On Silent Feet


I dreamed of snow
On silent feet
Falling down
Where heartaches meet.

Trees so bare
Like sculptures stood
Shorn of beauty
In their coats of wood.

The skies were satin
The clouds were silk
Like soft round pillows
As white as milk.

And everywhere
That my eyes glanced
The sad brown flowers
Stood up and danced.

The bare fields welcomed
The falling snow
Shame needs a covering
(Oh, how I know!)

The wind came whistling
And kissed my face
Departed laughing
With one last embrace.

And soon I stood
In a world of white
And watched the day
Turn into night.

The moon was smiling
With a child-like ploy
Through a tree full of snow leaves
Falling in joy.

And I ran in the moonlight
With a heart light and sweet
While the snow walked beside me
On it's silent white feet...
