Beguiled I stay awake

Minutes drag fingers that rakes

Sleep is such taken from me

Dappled by shadows

Eyes staring I breath

Images of meadows of endless visage

Daisies, Bluebells, Joined in prayer

Crops of dandelions here and there

Like opals of an April dawn.

A sudden breath I draw with a smile

As thousands blooms of Narcissus

On a grassy slope not far away I see.

Faces that mock, forms like wraiths

Mixing mud in my sanity

Still time drags its feet most gauntly

Edge of night I try and find, found it could not be
