STAR KNOWLEDGE

The star withdraws to cool,
Wrapping all with chilling mist,
Living sap,
Fluid of life,
Flees to sheltering earth,
Deep in warmth below,
Far from deadly icy blasts,
Dragging branches down,
Frozen brittle to snap,
Sharp cracks disturb night's silence,
The empty house hears nothing,
Roof gives silent drips a pause,
Frozen to sharpness,
Before dawn's dim greeting,
Only the living sap will remember,
Carrying the knowledge,
Signaled by the star,
When the orbits are complete.
