Sparkling crystal mornings
go unappreciated as dreams of summer
fill their minds.
Only to find the warmth of summer days
lost in longings for cooler times.
Consumed by dreams of winter stillness,
Tiny hearts are not nourished
as their parents wish for quiet orderly days.
Discovering when whose days arrive,
their hearts filled with longing
for the warmth of summer when their children
filled their lives with purpose.
