Sense

It all makes sense, now The past, of no shame Spoke loudly, but in vane It all rhythms, now Yesterday and today Beat together, to show the way It all makes sense, now Hindsight’s partner Speaks clear of the author And what of it, what of the note What of what’s been spoken so loudly So clearly Thought so remote… Read more →
