I look out the window


I look out the window I see a mid-evening sky,

With a dark wall of clouds waiting to advance.


I look lower to the tops of the trees,

With a bush of green leaves.


I go lower to tree trunks in a line,

With a gravel path cutting through the middle,

A bridge with a stream underfoot.


Walk further to a small field,

With flowers and grass all around.

It is crisp with the morning dew.


Go further, the wood thickens,

And falls into complete darkness.
