white silence lyrics – anne clark

outside
taking tiny steps
putting pressure on the ice
watch the whiteness spread
then disappear when i move on
careful
cautious steps in heavy boots

walking on ahead
you pause to catch a moment
see winter wrap the world
in a veil of white silence

this place –
where the earth gives the illusion
it has stopped turning

inside
warmth fires the colours
cracked
wood
turning burning orange
sparks off light
shining in our eyes

/ anne clark lyrics
