I know not

by Apr 28, 2004Poetry

lo, what holdeth the stars?
what beareth my future, my fortress?
as I lie under cloud and moon
seeking certain destruction, alas
I know not…
what carrieth this burden of night?
As I ponder all the wonder
of this fairy-like meadow
and am hunted by things
that are deader than death, alas
I know not…
lo, who lightest my way?
who approaches with the waning day?
why and I troubled so
with thoughts as I go, alas
I know not…
fading into the sky
alone, He and I
as I ascend a silver moon
where will my life lead
as my thoughts flow as a stream
alas, I know not.
