Is This The Page The Angels Turn

is this the page the angels turn,
the page of snows?
the child wondered

where the wind blows
when you can't hear it anymore
and are there shadows on the floor

while we sleep?
quietly the angels turned the key
and then you dreamed

and it seemed you dreamed
for a long, long time
till you were grown

no longer waking up
in the old room,
but with the same shadows.
