An Unbearable Beauty.
Come here and listen
watch the light playing
a cloud into the distance
a wonder in saying
This place, this whole, this beauty controlled
remember this cry, that loss so denied
was what we wanted fulfilled
Stay here in this keeping
breathe this star into night
singing the day before sleeping
allow this simple delight
A form, a ghost, a time so, 'beloved'
feel this thought right, a mind so involved
a cannot do now but weeping.
Leave these who thinking
contain what they hear
let your thought do the seeking
allow no time for fear
A world away from aching, deceitful complaining
a landscape of light and saying
feel what was then right
