My Dear, Persevere

When Winter is Long:
Oh! Sing me a song
the summer's a coming.
I know that your footsteps
are achin' for running;
down by the stone-steps,
rakin' the cold and wet
sea;

'How i wish of you dream-eyes
-laughing with me.'

When Summer Arrives:
We hold tight our eyes
and listen, just breathe!
Those troubles and trials
he'll hush down, you'll see.
With his breath in the treetops,
his voice in the
sea;

'How i've longed for this time
just for you
here and me. '
