So I have come today again
To this same forest of countable trees
Dispersed across the burdens of the land
Under which people sit searching wisdom
In the opening pages of books.
I have come again to lay my voice
At the foot of your passion.
So many children crossed my dreams
And cris-crossed my path without catching my pupil
But today, on the second occasion, here I am
Sitting in the forest of countable trees
To lay my voice, again, at your passion’s feet.
