Winterbourne Warriors

Willows wept wearily

When we wandered

Where wallflowers withered,

Warrens weaved within

Wayboard, weathered, worn,

Weirdward wards

Whereon wherries wash


With wilting ways,

Why were we waiting?

We wanted warmth

Wherethrough we winterbourne

Warriors walk woundless

Within wreckful worlds,

Whatever wrathful wyrd

Worked woeful worry,

Wuthering within

We waned, weaker,

What wretchedness

We watched wring,

Wistfulness woke
