Hibernation

Lui Collins, July 3,1989

I come from the forest
To the mountain cave
Leave behind my brothers
Solace I would have

This is my protection
From the winter cold
Always turning inward
Separate and alone.

All shuts down for the winter
Leave all life behind
Stuff my body full and numb
Quieting my mind

This is my protection
From the winter cold
Always turning inward
Separate and alone.

Slowing down my rhythms
Scarce can feel a thing
Moving through the motions
Sleeping till the spring

This is my protection
From the winter cold
Always turning inward
Separate and alone.

Spring will come to the mountain
Sun will melt the snows
Ice breaks loose in a torrent
Water rushing down

I leave my protection
Rousing from my sleep
Feel the waters moving
Draws me from the deep.

Waken from my dreaming
Drawn from the dark to the sun
Longing for my brothers
And to stretch my limbs and run

This shall be my safety
Bonding with my own
Reaching to the heavens
Drawing the Godlight down.
