♥ ♥ ♥ O, Time Be Kind Help this weary being To forget what is sad to remember Lose my loneliness, Ease my mind, While you eat my flesh ♥ ♥ ♥ To the weeping willow I stood beneath your limbs and you flowered and finally clung to me and when the wind struck....the earth and sand--you clung to me. ♥ ♥ ♥ Life, I am of both your directions Existing more with the cold frost Strong as a cobweb in the wind Hanging downward the most Somehow remaining Those beaded rays have the colors I've seen in paintings--ah life They have cheated you Thinner than a cobwebs's thread Sheerer than any- But it did attach itself And held fast in strong winds And singed by the leaping hot fires Life-of which at singular times I am both of your directions- Somehow I remain hanging downward the most As both of your directions pull me.
