Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Under


Under the dark
My mind races
Pictures of black and white
Rush by in a blur
And the daylight blinds
Because under the stars
My painted pictures come alive
While the rope burns
And my letters lie open
There's a change in the weather
And I stand drenched in the desert
Under the moon
My sighs fade with the day
And I dance with a perfect stranger
The road is long
And it's so far away
Under the dark
I miss the sun
Where my snow now lies
I miss the rain
Where it all lies dry
All I need is light burning low
And under my eyes
Is where it all survives

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
