L.U.C.A. 02:31
For having barely begun & so suspended in the distance What a fire it's got ; unabashedly persistent I should try to sow at least Spirit across the fields & leas It flew along in muzzled cry To invite these trembling, inviolate sighs I requited the source only to sense its pre-decline To the same point once again, it is lucid & crystalline I have braided the wind ; such an unrepentant killer What a path it's got, wound among the rows of pillars Dry the land & its dreary guile To ramify & to exile On fallow ground, the rot is blight Defocusing a wearied, oblivious rite But I'm inclined to feel the freeze Weathering all the brutal breezes Each is alone in frail reply & virtue is their only real ally I'm a little bit hoarse & in need of some repose Skirt the same edge once again, from wherever it arose I have greeted the void, so shadowy in peak resistance What a pull it's got ; unequivocally consistent [Lyric inspiration from Athanasios Maniopoulos]
