Wintershield

When winter comes
Lay down the shield
Wooden though it is
Trace the lines;
Four lines crossing
The middle
Four seasons
Crossing the year –
There
Circling the
Center
Two dragons
Holding together
Every good thing
As the snow falls-
We
The protected
Ones
Under their wings:
So Lay down the shield
When the winter comes
Wooden though it is.
