With the eyes of the sunlight roaming the earth
And the hooves of time galloping faster and faster
I feel that I am going to fall off,
I feel like I am losing control
With the moon chasing the sun into the horizon
in an eternal dance, a chasing of the light.
Night is but an ethereal reflection of day
With the moonlight dancing on the rivers,
though its light is but borrowed from a greater brilliance.
The whispers of the willows are amplified through the night,
their crying, their sadness dripping into the river
that flows from the great giants beyond:
I have scaled them,
Climbed to the top
just to crawl back down,
the air too thin,
Just like a wild rushing of happiness through my veins.
Then sunrise comes, chasing the moon into obscurity once more.
It shines its brilliance on the slanted grass extending from the earth,
Brings light to the prairie fields,
Washes night’s darkness off my heart’s beating.
The endless summer has arrived.
