Woods of Evergreen

He knows the dance of lines at night,
 and their expanding, wayward trip,
convergent margins that unite
 the perils and the clip-ons' grip.

Defiantly the speed directs
 where once, per life, lines sternly meet,
this trip's third destiny elects
 to make the skylines incomplete.

The scenes return to years before
 abstruse, night's ambit takes to where
the lines embellish this decor
 with his cognition's blue affair.

But who transforms converging states
 beyond the compass' distant knots,
becomes a smile that far abates,
 and his horizons' linking thoughts.

And those who dare to pass beyond
 their speeding dreams of years eighteen,
their margins' arbiters, self-spawned
 become and woods of evergreen.
