but slower still the ones who sleep

__________________

but slower still the ones who sleep

in lonely earth now hungrily dining

upon their broken bones

a soil home full too soon

but languish not these shining ones

for now their mercurial feet

dash from joy to light and back again

in the presence of still greater ones

who welcome their company

though we see not their dancing soles

and feel the loss beneath our own

their slow sleep tells stories

of happier waking dreams

now their own
