The Words – hibernation (poem)



sleeping in cotton

growing back my skin

my heart is here somewhere

my blood is thin

my eyes remain closing

never quite shut

though I am dosing

I can still look

Sleeping all winter

My hair growing long

Dreaming of lovers

And all that is gone

My mind is resetting

Under crisp white snow

Forgetting what happened

A long time ago

And with the spring

I’ll be covered in dew

Washing me clean

My whole body renewed

And I will go walking

Through daffodil hill

I’ll find a new lover

Have faith that I will
