Taking leave of everything around me
To live in a chimera
Where there is nothing like death
And babies rise from the lakes
And don’t keep us up at night
And it icecreams instead of snow
And all the frogs are golden

The sun hums so we can rise
When it’s day
And the cock dances to the tune
The moon doesn’t go away
She stays with the sun
They are married
The wedding was grand

In the summer there is ice
And everyone can skate
And the autumn leaves can float
In the chilly summer air

The spider is king
And the lion but purrs
The cobras don’t bite
And the implausible pain of the bramble’s prick
Can only be soothed with death 
But there is no such thing as that
So you live for eternity
With that pain.
