flight
sparrow

Come; take my hand and run
 1
away with me
 2
into the dusky woods before
 3
the stars wake up to watch us.
 4
 
 
Come; let us run away
 5
and spend a year
 6
amongst mists and silver pine-trees
 7
under eyes of stars and let us
 8
dance the rhythm lost; together
 9
slip through roughly salted fingers
 10
of other worlds.
 11
 
 
Come; run away with me
 12
into the darkness, dressed
 13
in moonbeam feathers
 14
to sleep under the stars and to forget
 15
the times we tripped
 16
over, eachother.
 17
 
 
Come; now
 18
I want you to hold my hand,
 19
to float and flee and fly
 20
away with me.
