Amy's Secret

Near river bend where the stream runs clear

I caught a secret that I couldn't say.

It greened the rocks.

It brought the air to chill.

It caused the trees to rot,

And splinter in crosses upon the ice.

It warmed the earth,

And melted sorrow away.

Near river bend where the stream runs clear

I caught a secret that I now can say.

The winter came,

And with it she departed.

An icy rock

Had signed it for her.

Spring has come and still they do not know

Of Amy's secret, frozen in the snow.
