For Miko
by Jim Ryan

Snow falls on the child
and all around the tiny figure
with her coalblack eyes
and open arms outstretched
in swirling white

all childhood long she stands alone
her strong little heart beating warmly
through the cold and endless dawn
certain that soon dear father will come

the land falls to the victors
she is claimed as a bride
and bears many children
in a country just as cold and foreign
as her own

all childhood long she never gives up
because he's coming through the icy dark
and whirling shimmer even now
on the last lonely night
