O God invisible as air

My tears were my meat

because no noxious factor runs with themonly
fragrant naïveté of the reflective noon while
bank herb and wooden flower and water from the pool
can top be gathered
also the knowledge
that those presents are tenuous and that the mouth
and the harp
might quickly be unusual to play
