about

I wrote "The Snow Blazed" at Camp Qwanoes, sometime in 1999 or so. I don't know what image prompted it, but it might have been the way the sun made the water seem white on overcast days.

lyrics

In the morning when I woke up for you there was rain.
It poured your love upon me like a hefty morning dew
While I was the Lily of the Valley

The snow blazed with light

Nests of hair and denim overalls were my home
Out the window, over waterfalls I flow like a sparrow falling madly

The snow blazed its white

July's naked sun makes everyone have more fun
Tonight, sky came grey, temp'rature dropped to snow from sun

Arms spread open wide you ran from there to here with your golden wings
It's all just an allusion that I do not understand: a lover to his prodigal love

Your eyes blazed with light
