Clouds in the water


That secret bird
The eternal truth
On the old pine tree

Pleading innocence
In those round eyes
That longs for the full-moon

The thin sunlight
The thick chills
Another year is gone

Cloud after cloud
The water frees from the ice
Into a stream, she then smiles

Sunrise rises to awake
Breaking from the reeds
The stream’s now dripping red

With a spring in her step
Ducks quack on the lake
They see clouds in the water
