This way rain, that way rain.

I see it from within

And stand within it.

I forget the trees standing in



I forget the desert without sand.

So the desert keeps sand

Within reach.


Young as I was,

old as I will be...


I remember yesterday, the peering man.

I remember the withering of Winter gardens.

The faces in carpet.

The ground sinking into snow.

I remember trembling,

Tenant of flame.


This is where I come from and go:

Dancing between shadow and fire.
