All winter long

behind every thunder

guess what we heard!

— behind every thunder

the song

of a bird,

a trumpeting bird.

 

All winter long

beneath every snowing

guess what we saw!

— beneath every snowing

a thaw

and a growing,

a greening and growing.

 

Where did we run

beyond gate and guardsman?

Guess, if you can!

— all winter long

we ran

to the sun,

the dance of the sun!
