Hart Crane tribute

forsake our eyes
  in a lovers cry
&sigh
    shadows sweep decends
that
   doubtful day:
a lie revealed
    now proved
first seen
in its fall
   on a cloud
    beyond desire

a tide of voices
sleeves
  of sound
     
wash away
slowly distills
     clustering
then
  sleeps

out of sight
singing low
   of long ago
times rcalled
   I used to see:
timeless
now torn
on wayward plight
silently
    below

into the dan
rhythm
drew a crash of leaves
like
 a  tide of destiny
change
   began
consummate&
                    free

dream no more
with
  barren trees
         without a rein
remember&
                atone
its not too late
sands
    are running

the hushed lands
home
  to our own
we all
    in thrall
while
   time clears
in endless space
it
smiles
 as in a cloud
of
 infinity ahead

abandoned pastures
mumurless
    blind ecstasy
& mutual glee
unvanquished space
&
chiselled heights
with
  sleeping havens
none escapes
the vision
    in our hands
now
  let go

now more alone
one by one
to
   grieve
the backward vision
through
the smoke

 tinselled hands
 through windowed panes
of
seasons
    fleeting
palatial white
in a show
      survey
not
   heard before
in antiquity or
              parentage

the heart is wrung
forsees
    the end
      with easy sight
on&on
   for evermore
one
   after
      one
breath
    made cry's
         surpassing call
beyond
    time
