Dream Song 112: My framework is broken I am coming to an end

 My framework is broken, I am coming to an end,
God send it soon.
When I had most to say my tongue clung to the roof I mean of my mouth.
It is my Lady's birthday which must be honoured, and has been.
God send it soon.
I now must speak to my disciples, west and east.
I say to you, Do not delay I say, expectation is vain.
I say again, It is my Lady's birthday which must be honoured.
Bring her to the test at once.
I say again, It is my Lady's birthday which must be honoured, for her high black hair but not for that alone: for every word she utters everywhere shows her good soul, as true as a healed bone,— being part of what I meant to say.
