The thirties: when dreams crash against the shore,
Hungering to change the littoral.
In time, the lulling rhythms of these surges
Realign the objects of one's urges,
Threatening a fade to pastoral.
Years break like dreams that sing of something more.

Often one forgets the miracle,
Not recalling how delight emerges
Easily, or what life is for.
