You made the stallion,
you made the filly
and now they sleep
in the dark earth, stilly.
Isn’t it silly, Willy Nilly?

Both of which bewildered and moved me

And never, upon recalling, 
Have I felt more of the need to...

Was winter, when all around us dies.

When father, brother, husband, all have died.

But travels to a distant, unknown land:
Once so secure, yet now compelled to roam;

I don't see you.
I've been searching my whole life,
But still, I don't see you.

When I was a wee lad
I looked for you ...
My mother's smile,
My father's toil,
My brother's refuge,
My sister's amity ...
I didn't see you.

and shed her dress;
companionless,
she shivers?nude, forlorn.

my immaculate heart
