The Colours Of The Tree Of Night

they cheated in cherry gardens of our years
the blind's men bluff and wringing out our tears
under starlight

we made do

with all the stories that we knew,
the ivory towered.

how have they come to raze it to the ground

speaking of peace and the colours of the Tree
of night?

now is the flight of all things holy

to the unseen countries bound.
