Crystal Island

Home atlas since far away away flowers
Tender roses meek serenity blowing slow
Just there by garden stood rose for showers
Beside a narrow stream flow
Doze the trees which went so soft by music
Paradise atlas just this home
Of snowy look falling fruits from figs
So fed we and gave her a calm name
Peace and love and share love of trees
Then at night when sleep from mountain dew
We dreamed not of better home than of trees
Which own long tasting dew
Some day soon came the sun
But retires as the frozen breeze drive it away
Fast folded her length away she ran
Till date time came and took us away
We could neither bear this departure
Or remain where our days were no more
Took for me memorial precious stones
Away with inscription of love and peace
In love the way we felt
Live and rise just in that spot
Trace the stars as long as the memorial could tell
Far away from that spot
Shadow deep spots of future sleep
Where to be call our memories
Until this was through to keep
Need arise moment for trial
Abide no more to weep
