Few Days More

Few days more my dreams need to come true, 
In that heart me to kindle a candle
The conurbation of lovers’ to locate 
And to renovate the ruins of past
And to patch up with a friend much annoy’d
Few days I need, few days more I need. 

To heal the wound of love deep and down
To raise the pennon of pain so high
To make the wind pleasant and saccharine 
To glide the kite of hope up in Blue
To make every troubl’d eye to gaze at it
Few days I need, few days more I need.

To cut a gate through that steel of hatr’d
Negligence, ignorance and the race 
To let the air overtake the barb’d line
To make the earth a place universal
With no country, coinage and congress 
Few days I need, few days more I need.

To make my beloved to touch the peaks
Of my platonic love so untaint’d
To make her heart soft, tranquil and calm
To discover listening the grief on beats 
Battered down by nay but native sob 
Few days I need, few days more I need.

To make a Brooke to sing not from book
But from the half dead voice of the poets
The verses they compose from broken beats
Nay with steel Nibs, but by the rib’s edge
To make the mass to pick up the ache
Few days I need, few days more I need.
