For so many years it bound me in despair

Would you rain on me once again

Starts to seek what his heart desires,
His confused of entities he ought to know,
Whether the world might bring him sorrow.

We Who Stay At Home

When you were just our little boy, on many a night we crept
Unto your cot and watched o'er you, and all the time you slept.
We tucked the covers round your form and smoothed your pillow, too,
And sometimes stooped and kissed your cheeks, but that you never knew.
