The Taking of Breath Amid Familiar Fields

Breathetake a breath amid familiar fields

uncounted breath bespoke of heart

and fevered death

breathless breath

amid close-faced flowers

languishing in soft failing light and sombre bower

breathethy black’ning breath

cleanse and purifyillume and easebreathe

thy soaring breathless breath

awaytake flightaway

from mortal strife on earth

from this age of ours

this dreaming time espied from sleep

the taking of breath amid familiar fields and wild flowers.
