inlius by babylonius radicus nimulus

and there was the one
who had been forever far
when the plane covered the wings
of such far off things

and so it went
to yonder high
on and on the bliss
of such a tender sigh

for we knew of such
that would be so much
in the trees we blew
and on green a few

by whatever means
to be near such things
when the twightlight breaks
for the things we make

in such few breaths
they nearly wept
and never to know
the far off grove

for it was gone
to wherever lone
grey the thing
that grew so green

now twas dead
really really dead
and new it came
so near the same

yet one went fourth
go near the tourch
to touch the flame
to be insane
