Closed Eyes


I have walk
The line which you stand on
But do you realize it
I have dreamed
A world much like yours
But do you know it

I have made
The very same mistakes as do you
But have you learned from them
I have spoken to you
The knowledge that I have embraced
But have you listened

I have taught you many things
From experiences of my own
But have you absorbed any of it
I have done many things for you
But your eyes are a door
Yet to be opened

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
