For a moment

Still wet with light and smiles
Not yet received, like fleece we’ve shorn
Off lambs that spring will never kiss
Nor breeze will hush their tears to sleep
With lullabies blown through the reed
Or dirges moaning on the grass
As time will pass,
Forgotten tales will see no face
Like sparks in ambers hiss
And wake the darkness dull with steps
As soft as sighs
That dare against the night to pace
On eyes
In salty dreams drowned in the sound
Of clouds that silence thunder’s cries
Like autumn leaves yet to be born.
