In “A Winter Song”, poet Lang Leav uses musical metaphors to express an intense love between two people. However, it seems to be a love lost, or perhaps an unrequited love: “….she no longer longs, yet she still loves”.

The poet’s website gives her background as follows:

"Novelist and poet Lang Leav was born in a Thai refugee camp when her family were fleeing the Khmer Rouge regime. She spent her formative years in Sydney, Australia, in the predominantly migrant town of Cabramatta. Among her many achievements, Lang is the winner of a Qantas Spirit of Youth Award, Churchill Fellowship and Goodreads Reader’s Choice Award.

Her first book, ‘Love & Misadventure’ (2013) was a break out success. Lang has been featured in various publications including The Sydney Morning Herald, The Straits Times, The Guardian and The New York Times. She currently resides in New Zealand with her partner."
