Summers, like waves

That a random ray

Hits and saves

 

Against the day

When poetry

Is lost

 

In memory,

When simile

Is lost

 

In poetry,

When love

Is lost

 

In sea,

When frost,

Like water

 

On the winter eye,

Like slaughter

In the sky,

 

Is the history

We live on

When the ageless future

Is long gone.
