Kit Kelen #494 - one leaf and another



494
one leaf and another
(in a cowslip's bell I lie)

book of the tree
church of the book
mountains beyond reach

the ice is round
the sea is a ring
and the sky
even night
lies unbroken

one leaf
and another
gone

over our heads
we keep

sink deeper
and sink deeper in
we are inventing the bed

let leaf be our blanket
one leaf and another
accordion opening

isn't the singing all night?

turn
in the dream
be dreamt instead

a certain leaf
too high to read
will be the gospel word
