The short years, here they have come /The old meanings unfolded by themselves/ All that strength in vane./ The meaning I had lost /The false meaning, disbanded /The frail heart. /Reality, how queer /The compact cold. And the memory, stripes, stripes./ Feathers flying from an old pillow. /Take a step and you ram The unseen wall./You reach out with our hand and recover it bloodstained.
