by Patricia Furstenberg
On lavender sky the sun sets low,
The wind whispers, he stirs none;
Hush, he murmurs, to dream-land you go.
On a cetacean sky when the moon is silver
An owl hoots no-one, no-ot a fiddler,
Tic-toc, chimes the clock, dreams are no danger.
On a velvety sky with blushing clouds, new,
And ruby leaves adorned with morning dew
I hear through the breeze come, come with me now.
The branches lay low, leaves tumble over,
I stumble and crawl, I slave to follow,
Where the road bends I spot your shadow.
Pale turned the sky as the sun smiled wider.
Follow me, sang the wind, just surrender
I feel your hand, warm and tender.
High is the sky above nude boughs,
The leaves laugh and sprinkle about
I’m as light as a feather, I touch the clouds.
And the wind?
The wind smiles and shrugs.
