"O Sleeping Falls the Maiden Snow"
by Kenneth Patchen


O sleeping lay the maiden snow
Upon the branches of the city
And oh my love was warm beside me


O nearer came the rush of dark wings
Over the dreams of my people
And oh my heart was full of their pain


O sleeping lay the maiden snow
Upon the bitter roofs of the world
But ah! my love was safe in my arms.
