The Lone Eye


Be steady
Haul the load
Heavier than the word
Till destiny greets you.

Don’t blink
For the load’s sake
Lest it strays away
Without a lone eye’s light.

Left to haul the load
All energetic eyes closed
Giving you the bitter chance?
Of hauling the blind lot
Till destiny greets you
Don’t blink.

Dedication: To all my kindred

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
