The Snow Fairy
Claude McKay, 1889 - 1948

Lyrics

Throughout the day I watched them there,
Fairies were falling, in the cold and the misty air

they, frail snow flakes Made sensual flight
down calm and earthwards towards peace and quiet.
I went to bed and woke with the dawn
To see them all merge Upon the lawn

The sun it shone brightly all through the day,
The flakes by the nightime had all gone away.
That's when my thoughts turned back to you
Who came when flakes through my window flew

Throughout the day I watched them there,
Fairies were falling, in the cold and the misty air

Your hair was disheveled, Your eyes were alight
Brought joy and brought heat all throught the night
You danced and sang Your passion it spread
I made you some room in my very small bed,

I turned down the covers fresh clean and warm,
And laid down beside you Safe here in my arms
You went with Dawn You left with the day,
One lonely actor in one dreamy play.

Throughout the day I watched them there,
Fairies were falling, in the cold and the misty air
