In this chapel those who kneel are bigger than those
standing, and those who bow down stand gigantic. You
delve deeper into the dark at first and panic, but you
need to know all the same. Otherwise how many years pass

like hummingbirds forced to fly at glass? The ivy
fields, red, gray, and the brides in them want only to sway,
to serve the music from the chapel, the chapel far now
from the sea. No greater than a shell,

the soul is distant and within reach. From the opening
strings the white meadowsweet, eyes who never close.
