Flakes in April

Flakes in April

It snows whenever you leave.
The sun smiles every time you come.

But you always leave in a storm. I could
know you in the mountains
splash with you the stream,
if only I could find you swimming

Do your tears freeze on your face
when you return to exile?

Next time you come,
let us be rivers and
and meet in the ocean
where there is no snow.
