wake

come slowly
and board the the rising deck of day,

come rolling swell,
bring us the morning,

swallow up the cinders
of yesterday.

wake this with me,
one more time,

come slowly
and find the riches,

sweep out the dead ashes,
the spent kindling.

the half-sun lies
dormant in the new sky,

mercifully sweet,
the taste in my mouth,

come slowly,
and with warm loving tongue

wake me.

wake
