from afar
    the dark flows
pride
   beholden
      before chance
hearing
   the call of love
then
   notices the sunlight
&
   feels its wonder

weeping
   behind a cloud
years of
       decay
with its neighbour
care
  is pleased to answer

with
  supreme surprise
curiosity
       appears
           unfettered
yet
perplexed
by choice
uncurls
    in fear
yields
    to sleep

impulse
   is flattered
&
pretends
      to displace despair
&
doubt
excites &
           invents
nerves
    to blight
             all life
                 today

conceit
    possesses the staid
provokes
    change into
                   flight
where concern
     stands
       discrete
splashed
    by peace
&
found at dawn
               in belief

reason laments
              the night
begins&urges
the
    spread of vision
dressed
by
the good
on
   the
     brow
         of mankind

brevity
    discovers design
                     innate
yet
  as an impulse
comes in
     ahead of purpose
a gift
    to flood
        the future

thought commands
&
    dominates
talk
   forsakes merit


aloft as
          vapour
descends
     to the abode
               of sound
attends
    the dance
to
partcipate
with
     charm
         once forgotten
