when i find you i will dance in your embrace
through the fences with the moon across your face
and when we fall into our winter den below,
when the earth begins to slow her spin
they'll know...

that we are foxes
we are coming home again,
barking insults to the hunter and the wind
and we'll escape them, though the fog may blind the sun
though the dogs behind us run, our time has come

once i was fixed in a memory:
she stretched her arms like a flower,
leaning my head toward the morning,
to shine with the sun by the hour

and i am hoping you'll remember how i smiled
curled up to you like a lover or a child
youre the letter i have carried through this war, with familiar pages worn, some pages torn

caught in the cold of december,
she took my hand in her sleep
kept it from boston to hartford (ooh, we all believed we could keep)
once i was fixed in a memory:
me with my eyes nearly closed,
she with her breath on the window,
sighing like a furnace to the snow
