crystal rain

what comes down from the sky is white and plain
a lazy saturday is what we've got
not much to be recalled or else forgot
we do the job and do it once again
there's nothing complex here nothing arcane
we bind and unbind knot and then unknot
earn our small fees or learn to pay our scot
and contemplate the falling crystal rain
cascades of music set the changing scene
all of our eyes are focused on the sky
but we can rest there's nowhere yet to go
we add up all the things we find they mean
not very much say otherwise you lie
just sit and look at the large flakes of snow
