graduation poem

out of me unworthy and unknown
under dusky laurel leaf
when the hours of day are numbered
when freedom from her mountain height
short and sweet, and we've come to the end of it
in the dark and peace of my final bed
there is no flock, however watched and tended
bring me soft song
i had a dream and i awoke with it
and my name is truthful
not from the whole wide world
i despise my friends more than you
i flung my soul to the air like a falcon flying
