Shadowed Skies That Plum.

Shadowed skies that plum.
The heart of infants, a strum,
Moved through bristles of walking wind
Kissed the small valley dell,
And I’d dwell through lonesome seas.
I missed the dead tribunal moon,
As it gazed above some deaf winds;

Slipped through the river stream,
With instant buds of a morning desire,
And I’d wake to see the silver stars
And know that it was too late tonight;
I didn’t want to miss it, yet I did
Through the beats of the humming drips
Coursed through thin wax of combs,

Another moment, the strike of day,
Collapses at the dawn—early and rendering
The core of natural voices in the skies,
And no more dreams, they are,
And I’d see the moon gaze anyway,
What an object of light, and its rays
Reach me beyond the breath of dead of night,

The stream of rivers made their way,
And I’d never know it, but it sang the course
And it was away, a lustrous wash—clean,
To be slept away in the lonesome sea
And with love. The darkened sea was alone
And with the gleams from stars and they’d expire,
With light to share in the silver sea of moon-tides;

Shadowed skies that plum
The heart of infants, a strum,
Moved through bristles of walking wind
Kissed the dell once a moment,
And I’d dwell through lonesome seas.
I missed the dead tribunal moon,
As it gazed above some deaf winds.
