Sail Away Castles

In the sail away castles of the evergreen,
there are trees of great standing and age;
into the blue their wide clustered canopies
reach up, their gold-spun leaves,
each and every one,
singing the most joyous of songs
about love, peace, life under the sun,
the gods’ great release
of energy from nowhere,
sown with patience into somewhere,
to grow this universe of wonder,
in which, like a pearl in an oyster,
you reside. Sweet and temporary
butterfly. Hide not your wings.
You are one of the smallest
of things, it is true,
but everything matters,
including you.
