“Before we / Before us / Before we were alive, / This was a world”

Before we

Before us

Before we were alive,

This was a world

A nature world

One wide and true

With hearts breaking

And the moon

Moving through the trees.

But it was all moved to get us glowing through the trees ourselves.

The end…
