Shine More Light on the Trees

(©2003 C./R. Rothschild)

You alone
in the wood
Hoping your lantern will bite through the darkness and trees,
finding the homes of the people that nobody sees

Shine more light on the trees,
shine more light there
for a second did you see somebody there?

They are here,
this you know.
Follow the path that goes into the ruins at night
go where the water is falling and the fireflies light


At their door
you arrive;
they’re so close,
death and life.
Leaving your shadow behind in the arms of the trees
even as the morning is starting to sing in the East
