The Little GirlBoy Lost

Child, you are futurity
your prophetic going
That indignant walk

The maiden Youthboy
lost in Naked Beams
little wild crime
as a white lioness there

curtains of birds come
prime song Met with rising grass
strange waves underneath

frowning wanderer, pale as vapour
the mooneye cave shakes
the earth licks the grave
