Soft Bare Feet

SOW ALONE

Stand alone in winter freeze

As autumn robs your leaves

Shade against the summer heat

Sway alone in springtime breeze.

Then out

Out you shout

And sprout

In a rush

From natures crust

You thrust

From a seed

And touch

The sky you need

To breath

So much you’ve seen

Alone

You grow

Enclosed in bark

Alone in midnight dark

You spark

Your roots you’ve sown

Into and from the earth

You’ve known

Alone

Your spring

In springtime green

With gold

That autumn gold that knows

You’re growing old

In young time green

Or ancient gold

Alone

Old

Yes natures old

Then told

As you recall it all

From wince you came

You fall

To your earth

She calls

The one who’s given birth

To all

All Alone.

Down

So big and round

You lay flat on the ground

Decayed in rain

That pounds you down

Into the ground

You’ll stay

Alone

Then out

Out you shout

And sprout

In a rush

From natures crust

You thrust

From a seed

And touch

The sky you need

To breath

So much you’ve seen

Alone.
