Eaton Bard

Rookie (Long Ago, But Not So / On Dirt outside of Eden)

They are not lost


They are not lost.

We are stranded,
Bound up In reason,
Dreaming
On the banks of the river,
As those departed
Are returned
Awakened
In the first made
Meadow,
Beyond the sentinel
Stillness
That towers over time,
As a picket
Against
All things passing.


In that original Light,
Free from the
Artifice of the tissue
And the chaos
Of the mind,
Unmoved by cause and
Undisturbed by
The weight of words,
The spirit has its own
Seasons
And the soul
Its own song.
In that kingdom,
It is we
Who are sleeping
And they who belong.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
