Don`T Go Skating On The Thin Sheet Of Ice

Don`t go skating on the thin sheet of Ice
She might give in and you`ll get stuck there
forever(for your life)
Do not skate on the thin sheet of Ice
The rainbow cuts(romancing)the blue breasts
of the summer sky;seagulls fly high and high
Deep in the rainy night while the bridegrooms
are all busy grooming their new brides(eyes
strange;voices deep,wild);arti wakes up
sweating in surprise---
Tiptoes she to my moonlit orchard to play w/
my dew-drenched,dreams-drunk Unicorns
wise,wild--Come my roses,come my brides
Play w/ the kings and queens of youthful
While still the seraphs of manhood/womanhood
stayeth anew,afresh,awry,wild
Don`t go skating on the thin sheet of Ice
I in you cry;You in I smile!
