Two Worlds

Why do we go to the mountain
Or to the speaking brook below
To get a taste of familiar grace
To listen and not be known

A wiser man than I once said
There are two worlds in each
One of air and one of thought
Of both a man can't keep

The settling of one of these
Is the absence of the other
If men never fly over soil and saddle
They surely make their way asunder

Through these two are many born
Yellow dawns and flooded streets
Someone else said reverence both
The savage and the dream

But I guess I go to the mountain
To see the world below
To put myself on that granite shelf
To pretend that I'm alone

And I know why I go to the water
To wait for the weathering bell
To watch as I may what is drawn away
Another story time did tell -
