Chapter Twenty-Eight - Yellow Springs

20 1 0

I travelled through the yellow springs,

Weary of soul and heart –

Oh, how my eyes brimmed with tears.


So much suffering and wailing,

I cannot bear it –

My heart cannot bear it.


I walked through rivers of tears and blood,

The bones frightened me –

I wanted to go home.


Soothed by your song,

I listened – oh, I listened.

The yellow springs did not amuse me.


I flew back to you with wings of joy.
