Never Seen - by Mara Lemanis


Never Seen
by Mara Lemanis

There lies
past sorrow
a great sigh
of beauty,
of distant
gods, majestic
countries one
has never
been or seen,
but guards
the marrow
where the mind
lies chaste,
of the dream,
where neither
time, nor love
nor duty
pay ransom
to the
hangman’s scheme.
