[Seasons and Ghosts: Both Are Solemn]

Seasons and Ghosts: both are solemn.	
		so what if you are married 
to Winter?
		When Spring comes
the chill of love is gone.
	Wave "adieu" to the stars,
whom the night wears
		like a velvet dress.
The Wind whispers of 
		the changing of the
Guard--change the channel
	of the Television from
one commercial to
	the night does not
cry, the pale dawn
	does not weep like
a Soap Opera actress,
		but the circles
take them too..
		If you feel too proud
to skin your emotions 
		for the
theatre of the earth,
	let the circles sweep
			you up
like a Season's phoenix leaves.
