open season on interpretations: "lily bright"

Where is summer,
        when snowflakes flower on the air?
                sleeping in springtime, 
dreaming on the wind.
                      Summer slumbers,
     amid visions of shadows
                              and sun.

And you, summer's child,
                shivering in the snow,
     waiting for winter to pass you by.
                            What dreams of summer
carry you on?
            It is winter,
                      and flowers bloom pale
  and cold.

          Gone is autumn,
                    summer's last embrace is still.
                               There is no answer, 
no warmth remaining there;
     autumn rests in summer slumber,
                          springtime dreams.
It is gone, lost and cold
          in the springtime snows.

              Summer's child,
                  sleep softly in the night.
Winter's cold will pass,
        and pass you by.
                       Dream of springtime,
twine pale flowers in your hair.
                            Summer's day
            and summer dreams will come.

And Lily's other-house-she-found-for-us-to-see looks positively fantastic. If "some TLC" means paint and carpet, then it's even neater-sounding than the last. *bounces* Friday-bank, Saturday-house-looking...
