When we were children we lay in the grass

And counted the stars, but only up to

A hundred or so, because we got lost

But not out there in space, right here in space


For space had fallen here, all around us

Oh, don’t you remember? We were among

The stars, flying wildly through the silences

Beyond all time, beyond all sense of self


We almost found the secrets of Creation –

And then our mothers told us to come inside
