Listen!
Dear dream of utter aliveness --
Touching my body of utter death --
Tell me, O quickly! dream of aliveness,
The flaming source of your bright breath.
Tell me, O dream of utter aliveness --
Knowing so well the wind and the sun --
Where is this light
Your eyes see forever
And what is this wind
You touch when you run?
