THERE IS A WORD
Beautiful as a fresh dawn,
As a bud opened in the morning,
Clean like dew in the bud.
There is a word like
Sweet child of honeyed feelings,
As if joy of eyes like endless sky.
There is a word,
Higher than the word truth,
Above the truth itself
There is a word:
Heart is shrinking in the empty home,
Black uncertainty prevailed at last.
I am a vagrant man, myself far from,
In my eyes fatigued mists sank fast.
But you don’t come to listen to
My ardent words are audible no more:
Making farewells pass over you:
Still myself oh I am looking for.
