Winter Palace

Our lives are painted

like rainbows across the sky ,

our lives are noise

modulated by reason ;

We sit and stare

at endless vistas ,

we ready ourselves for work

tidying the chaos into

an order which stray winds

will cast once again

beyond our grasp

beyond our reach ;

We live like the last Czar

in our Winter Palace ,


waiting for the Revolution

that has already passed us by.

    This, otherwise simple poem has an implied meaning-but if be a song for all of us, then we have reasons to be very happy; happy days are here again !
