Extinguish the disappointed stars and cover their eyes
Apologies to the man on the moon
Chase away Jupiter and Mars.
Excuse Pluto and old Neptune.
Withdraw the rays of the enlightened Sun
Hold back the tides from where they begun.
Strap down the wind and oppress the free
Tame the Lion, then empty the sea.
Colour the world just black and white.
Withstand the wind with all your might.
Tickle the trout until they fall asleep
Threaten the cricket, to silence keep.
For I delved low and my mind expressed
With no thought for the searching rest.
I played and posted, upon a thread
My heart is sad and my conscience dread
I will enter in to that place called true,
waiting to take me and you and you !
