Body found frozen recollects its death

I wanted spring so bad
Christmas came and Beauty left
A token moment of sunlight
My iris bloomed in sheer delight
Her purple petals by the stoop.
But most of all she let descend
Sibyl seagulls from the sky
Strutting proud my narrow lawn
Searching for a summer mate
“You the Man!” they bowed aver
“Spring is here because you are!
Come with us and you will see
Paradise is here to stay.”
I answered back, “Amen! Amen!”
Doffed my clothes and traveled light
And high upon that cloudless day
Beauty set her blizzard in.
