for just one mountain to fall,
just one sea to carry my weight
that i might tread the waves,
for but a moment…

that the sun would simply stand still
just for a second at my request
and the moon, that she would be held,
a pearl in the skies before my eyes

if the wind would only breathe
small words of silver in my ears
while the trees bowed deep
for only the briefest of time…

for these mere things
my life, my golden life,
for these paltry things
