lyrics

Mother of the spring
Her branches cradle sleeping buds,
Yawning open.
Welcomed by an aging man
He greets them fondly

With memories of when
Her bows were arms that held him as a younger man
Together, they would marvel at
The birth of spring time

Now he stands beneath the apple blossoms
Every year where they used to go walking
And he tells her about the summer and the autumn,
The winter in his heart,
And their apple blossoms

In summer they would dream
Of being three and smile,
Imagining her round,
As the apples on the ground
That fall, they loved and waited

But winter came too soon
Before their seed could bloom
She wilted from the chill
And all fell cold and still

Now he stands beneath the apple blossoms
Every year where they use to go walking
And he tells her about the summer and the autumn,
The winter in his heart,
And their apple blossom
