What I have found


How I have been driven
What gauntlet I took up
What gauntlet I threw down
It does not matter

I found little birds in hiding
I found rain slick pavements
Sodden bushes
Winds tormenting eves
Teasing inside!

I found webs of intrigue

Silence in the sun
Chasms too wide
Mountains too high

Hankering and hungering
And crying after the moon

I have walked past forever
And the morns not given

I now settle for a lowlier heaven
And sink to surety at last
