A Silent Wonderment (On White Shadows)

I don’t know why

Enthralled for some time

Strangers in words

Coming in waves

Now’s not the time

For you and I

To question the minds

Of those passing through

Silence must be

Found between breath

Of song tune and rhyme.

You do all that

And maybe I’m blind

Surcharged is my soul

I think not I know

Behind in the fold

The dull hum of stillness

Emblazons my whole.

A life in the hands

Of peer marching bands

Caught between dreams

Fear my resolve

Meander, meander

Permise heedless ears

Sing for you have to

Preach me you foul!
