For a single moment, I saw it.

A falling diamond, crystal white

With four blue wings sparkling.

When it came, there was a whistle,

And it hit the ground with a splash.

Didn’t you see it?


It was a slight sprite that pierced

The dim black curtain ahead of me,

Swept away the drowsy mist

Rolling from behind the billowing

Lead cloth. The air was so thick

Maybe you didn’t see it.


Perhaps the vision was a simple wish

From a dulled head, excuses to forget

My life is slowly covered by that curtain,

Slowly, unfolded from the waist to my eyes.

Or, if I’m lucky, it was inspiration.

My own little muse that sang for

What laid beyond that dim curtain.

I know, at least, I saw it.
