"Oh my God, we forgot the buns!"

Guests arriving
Coals flaming

From his Lover and her roomies
Then he starts to...

A freezing cold evening

Where the stars shining bright

With frost blade flanks

From mouth and nose steam

In the clear silence

White untrodden snows

Nature's frozen pulse

Sleep like a little baby

One gracious moon
