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
