The River of Memory

The River of Memory

In a waking dream I feel

The evening breeze runs blue

Flows away, shimmering

On endless, azure flight

The river of memory murmurs

Teeming like the sands of time

Mysterious night, suspended

Between the sunset and the dark

In the wine of twilight

Dark lilacs and silver water lilies

Deep below the waters

Sweet humming whispers

Of dancing, scented mists

Trembling at the tones of love

Standing strong before the wind

One by one, like leaves from a tree

A snow of rose petals

Falling with the gentle rain

Melting away under stars

Brings me soft songs

And fragments


Of peace
