famous poem

the lightning flashed, and lifted
the mountains they are silent folk
those on the top say they know you, earth-they are liars
happiness
if the red slayer think he slays
here falls no light
for then without
there are gains for all our losses
be not false
from our hidden places
in your arms was still delight
to come so soon to this imagined dark
with the meek, brown eyes
