Golden Stone

To where did it flee, the golden time, 
it came in generous flame, 
heating hearth of heart, in opulence shared, 
the shimmering raiment of feeling kept,
warming; dawn swallowed like a drug, 
with twilight plateaus and midnight peaks.

Where did it go, clarity devoured whole,
and a kind of madness ensued, 
drifting through wayward delirium,
burying dead thought along the way,
now at mile stones we dig up graves;
study subconscious bones,
don’t want to be slaves.

Where did the golden time go,
still with you blind child,
open eyes, live, breathe, fly;
later, much later, die...
and be standing stone of golden times.
