I wore a warm coat against a cold winter wind
For hours I stood till the cold won
Then I went inside and drank hot chocolate
The sweetness gave life to my lips
I touched my coat, but the wool was cold
But soon it too would be warm
Then I went into the winter wind and made my peace
But the wind deceived me and won as it always does
Inside the hot chocolate sweetened my lips once more,
And when the wool would become warm,
I'd go in peace against the cold winter wind, and stand till it won
