Death in the ocean only comes once upon
the prose tree in my mind, there is a darkness
in the lithe stillness of autumn oaks now gone,
as olive flowers; a fantasy heartless
in horizon by Rome hills, a sea of loss
is what we lost before to the ebbing across
the fight of mind, let it turn away and leave;
the echo of the dream, in darkness of eve.
