This poem is three exercises in reduction -
attempting to say fewer and fewer words, yet convey the same feeling or thought.
Desire fled on wings of ice-colored sorrow
In a snowy sky, her joy lay frozen
When all she wanted was to softly fall
Deliciously upon the love first chosen
Desire fled with ice-colored wings
Her joy frozen above
Wishing only to fall
On her delicious love
Are frozen above
To fall in love.
