Bone Deep

Draft 1

Chilled to the bone without end
I’m warm-blooded, you see
Can’t tolerate the air frozen
The cold winter bothers me
 
No matter how many garments
Layers of garb and long sleeves
No measure of excessive threads
warm me in winter’s upheave
 
I lay in bed, and I quite contend
An icy fog rises from my feet
From a fiery spirited ocean
I remain in a deep-seated freeze
 
Indeed the softest of featherbeds
Impersonate dismal tepid degrees
Frosty fingers wrap around my head
In arctic air, I can scarcely breathe
 
I long for sun-time my summer friend
Blue sky above as I lay in my swing
My pale skin once more intensely golden
Not a somber cloud near or far to be seen

Draft 2

Chilled to the bone without end
I’m warm-blooded, you see
Can’t tolerate the air frozen
The cold winter bothers me
 
No matter how many garments
Layers of garb and long sleeves
No measure of excessive threads
warm me in winter’s upheave
 
I lay in bed, and I quite contend
An icy fog rises from my feet
From a fiery spirited ocean
I remain in a deep-seated freeze
 
Indeed the softest of featherbeds
Impersonate dismal tepid degrees
Frosty fingers wrap around my head
In arctic air, I can scarcely breathe
 
I long for sun-time my toasty summer friend
Blue sky above as I lay in my swing
My pale skin once more intensely golden
Not a somber cloud near or far to be seen

Draft 3

Chilled to the bone without end
I am warm-blooded, you see
Cannot tolerate the air frozen
The cold winter bothers me
 
No matter how many garments
Layers of garb and long sleeves
No measure of excessive threads
warm me in winter’s upheave
 
I lay in bed, and I quite contend
An icy fog rises from my feet
From a fiery spirited ocean
I remain in a deep-seated freeze
 
Indeed the softest of featherbeds
Impersonate dismal tepid degrees
Frosty fingers wrap around my head
In arctic air, I can scarcely breathe
 
I long for sun-time, toasty summer friend
Blue sky above as I lay in my swing
My pale skin once more intensely golden
Not a somber cloud near or far to be seen
