Snowfall Seduction

Always your beauty compels me to love you
Soundless, your cadence seduces my will
As hilltop and hollow and hemlock you thrill
From infinite well-springs far, far above you

Always your tumble of gentle persuasion
Draws me toward you in spite of my will
To bolt every shutter and door to your chill
You kiss my window in quiet temptation

And thus I am drawn to your passion so pure
Free-falling diamonds without reservation
I am a child now of foot-loose elation
Heaven unrivaled creates such allure

Always your descent softens my misgiving
Soothing my nurtured premonitions of dread
With carefree abandon you land on my head
Suddenly I am in love, and forgiving
