At night in green fields darkened I wandered lost and felt that I should come upon a secret place, known to no kin of mine.
On the horizon I could make out the distant orange blaze of the concrete kingdoms and I lamented that I was so close to them.
I gazed upwards and the majesty of the unfolding heavens gave to me a sweet revelation of stars.
At my side, a seething torrent of shadows as the grass bent and twisted.
I raised my head a little and heard the trees up high on the ridge roaring with the wind.
I felt a deep feeling, as if the echoes of a dream at daybreak, and it portended my waking doom.
I was to fall for a long time in sleep.
