    Rain falls into the open eyes of the dead
    Again again with its pointless sound
    When the moon finds them they are the color of everything

    And then the man whom Sorrow named his friend
    Cried out, Dim sea, hear my most piteous story!

    Rolling along in dreams from hill to hill.
    He fled the persecution of her glory....
