Sunlight and wonder are racing the chill rain;

Who knows when they will be back again?


I have lived for a time in this dreamer’s corner;

Yet when I leave, I will not be back again.


Like birds, my hopes took flight for the night sky;

They circled the stars and came back again.


My love waited here, bright, over the waters;

In silence, you sent it back again.


I’ve imagined them all, these gods and these glories;

I cried out, but she turned her back again.


Forgetting is long and I don’t know the hours,

Yet the sorrows, their names all come back again.
