Word Cut Diamond, Diamond Cut Word

word cut diamond
diamond cut word
I heard an angel say

in a dismal time

what have they done
with the heart encrusted with pearls
the lily asides

the gilding of the trees;

have they banished light?
word cut diamond

diamond cut word

like a nursery rhyme I never heard
will the clouds part

revealing the Sun

or will we wander on-
intoning to the end

word cut diamond

diamond cut word
all hearts are cut so

in the end whispered the angel,

friend or no friend?
queried the children out of sight

or mind to a tune

they didn't know yet, really
