David II

"So this is a way"

...Into the dream
At the blink of an eye
In the palm of a hand

So bruised this land
How fresh is thy heart
Changeling of glass

The bridge over the dam
So safe from lies
Of discreet charm

Day and night
I dream of the land
Under eyes thine

No felicitous hopes
In words of awe
Rather woe

Bodily geography
Extends, afield
From finger to eye

Without escape
From abandonment
You sail me homewards

So earthly
This destination
Godly as the times

Foreign, I am
History, run past
Disappointment, charm

Oh, the happy hour
A promise sustained
At the dam
