I have seen the end of the earth
I have touched the edge of the sky
I have walked the forgotten roads
I have flown as birds fly
 
Across the land I have jumped
The stars I have seen
I have tumbled like their dust
Onto surface unclean
 
I have washed it with my hands
With whirling waters wide
I have grown there a seedling
And there it still abides
 
But now it grows lush
And into the sky
A pulse of ivory roses
In the moons opal eye
 
I have stolen breath from the old man
Given name to the young
Spoken all the languages
And yet have no tongue
 
I have watched the world a-spinning
Freed the imprisoned,
imprisoned the free
The world watches on
But it doesn’t see me
 
As I dance upon rooftops
They crumble and fall
And then rise up again
As a new century calls
 
And as I stand still
For only a second or two
A pause in a millennia
I see everything as old
where you see it as new.
