In The Forest
Here, O my heart, let us burn
dreams that are dead
Here in this wood
let us fashion
a funeral pyre
Of fallen white petals and leaves that are mellow and red,
Here let us burn them in noon’s flaming
torches of fire.
We are weary
, my heart, we are weary, so long we have borne
loved burden of dreams that are dead, let us rest
Let us scatter their ashes away, for a while let us mourn;
We will rest, O my heart, till the shadows are grey in the west.
But soon we must rise, O my heart, we must wander
Into the war
of the world and the strife
of the throng
Let us rise, O my heart, let us gather the dreams that remain,
We will conquer
the sorrow of life with the sorrow of song.
