The echo darkens in the light
Steps lost on pavements wet with woe
When chords of melodies unsung
Reflect the Moon’s forgetful glance
Like butterfly to blow
On breeze into the distance
And kiss in shadows bright the long
Night into sleep with lays unseen
Of colours never caught by wing
Upon the notes we’ve yet to sing.
