The Art of, and “Frozen Echoes” by Máire Morrissey-Cummins

Frozen Echoes

Hawthorn blossoms
pearled the hedgerows
as birds rejoiced,
chiming the air
with heartbeat rhythms,
a leafy green spring
as baby buds peeped in.

I carried you,
felt you
but never got to hold you.

Another year has passed
and I am still lost
in the black cold of winter,
remembering the day
you left me.
It has been so long
and we never said goodbye.

My tears,
frozen in time.
Echoes of songs
that never were,
dreams that can never be.

Fog blankets the fields.
The sky expresses what I cannot.
I hear the parting clouds,
I speak to the sunrise
of my love for you,
your movement, your sound.
I would speak of anything
to bring you back,
but there is only frost
and winter dwells in my heart.

I see the spring,
but know
I will never feel your warmth.
