“Of The Magi”
from “Winterbloom: Traditions Rearranged” (2009)

inspired by “The Gift of the Magi” by O. Henry

Does love grow and shrink,
Does it slip off in the cold like a ring?
Winter moon like an old fruit
Hanging low over everything

We were young and poor then
I couldn’t buy you anything
But don’t you know I’d cut off my hair
Take it downtown and i would trade it in
A band for your watch if i’d only known
Our time was almost up

All the trees are cut
The lights are strung, the nights are long
But the coals of my first dream
Are breathing back to life again

We were young and poor then
I couldn’t buy you anything
Don’t you know I’d cut off my hair
Take it downtown and i would trade it in
A band for your watch if i’d only known
Our time was almost up
Almost up, oh almost up

So many lovers in the park
Skating circles in the dark
Hands deep in mittens but arms tightly locked
I stand there and I watch
There’s so much beauty in what’s lost
But what you left me with is better
Then anything you could of bought

Don’t you know I’d cut off my hair
Take it downtown and i would trade it in
A band for your watch, if i’d known
I’d cut off my hair, take it downtown and i would trade it in
A band for your watch if i’d only known
Our time was almost up
Almost up, oh almost up
Almost up, oh almost up

Does love grow and shrink, does it slip off in the cold like a ring?
