Pât pat pat pat Pât pat pat pat

Pat pat pat on the window panes
Small pale fingers on the cold clear glass
Small hot hand leaves a frosty stain
And waits for the pat pat pat to pass

Water in the gutter, signalling the fall
Signalling the final phase of fires fading fast
Time to pile pillows into playgrounds in the hall,
Time to save the daylight
from the day that doesn't last
