The poem(s) are below...



The wool of our souls not
weary with days, it warms 
us amidst our well, worn ways.
To cleanse and be cleansed 
from all grief and be sheared 
and cut with natural beauty. 
Brushed by fate and time, 
our fabric covered with folds
and tears of warmer days. 
Tough and strong, not easily 
torn, we keep our honor safe
from that which deflects our 
ways. The soul of dawn safely 
suns us and with the herd 
we are forever content.
