“cubit’s knight”

in the swift turn of air
a solemn song dissipates
it turns the shattered leaves
and sends a high chorus
through the great cathedrals of man.
but they are not of stone,
they are built of the soft flesh.
they resonate from the soulful tomb
carving and twisting a vision of beauty,
and in the orange-sweet breath of sound
they live and they die
but never, never are they gone!
passing the broken homes
and scraping the high towers
here in this lofty space…
slowly they dwindle,
slowly they dance by the sweet ear’s of children
the vibrant echo fluttering faster
in the ageless heart of youth.
the dream grows on now!
it tears me from my doldrums
and lifts me into space
forever to remember
this momentary grace

  1. This is so touching! I had a wonderful time playing at the hospital today. I really appreciate you giving me the opportunity and being flexible with me bringing my friend, Julia! The new hospital is an inspiring place to visit and hope to get to come back there soon! Look forward to staying in touch with you! Sydney
