Rest

A SONG OF LIFE

Dig me deep into the underground
the cool and dark below the loam
where rock and worm weave magic spells
through dusty trails we cannot follow

Dig me deep into the heart of earth
the pulsing mud abubble with
lost bits of life long buried and
forgotten in the sand and clay

Dig me there into the soil deep
rich with memories and farmers’ tears
where god-sweat stains the ancient rocks
destined for mountains never born

Dig me deeper into silty silence
whose melody drunk by greedy roots
is flung from branch to moody sky
a song of life for the ever dying
