|LIKE DRIFTING SNOW
Like drifting snow they come and go,
Lasting for just a while.
To catch them or to hold them back,
Verily, is futile.
They are more like a screen of smoke
Hanging at mountain tops;
Itâ€™s a castle one moment but
The illusion then drops.
As sunlight shines, the smoke is gone
And the snow drifts away.
So do the fleeting memories,
In my mind drift and sway.
