In the hollow rain,

When the grey above

Leaks colors from my steps,

You comfort me.

----------------------------------------------

Silence is never absolute.

Sounds always seem

To seep into our solitude.

--------------------------------------------------

Wisdom slowly accumulates

In the cracks left over

From our disasters.

------------------------------------------------

The summers of my Huckleberry youth

That were slowly swept away

Lie golden in my memory

And still color me today.

-------------------------------------------------

I hold this hammer in my bloody hand

And bring it smashing down.

Will lightning flash and thunder roll,

Or is it just a hollow sound?

--------------------------------------------------

You have a good, deep, wonderful heart

Down to the twinkling of your toes.

So why do your sweet words desert you

When all of my feelings show?
