More Than We Can See...(so be kind, my friend)

That brazen hill once wore the fragile frill of Queen Ann’s lace
That frozen field by snow concealed was once a sea of gold
The barren tree, on winter’s lea doffed of Her green-spun grace
Is not all that she seems to be, that woman bent and old
Was once the girl that turned the heads of Casanovas past
Was once a mama’s pride and joy, a husband’s heart and soul
A mother to the girls and boys that grew up way too fast
A fairest-of-all-flowers before winter took its toll
That hoary head once red-blonde-chestnut-raven tossed, carefree
Is but the crown of wisdom on the girl she used to be
