the very air breathes green
-gentle sweeps of sweet grass

mazes of dark pens
creep to the craggy steeps
-patches of lichen on sweaty grey

the clumps of stone ruins
castles, abbeys, dove-cotes
are slimy with mold, musty closeness

vast, sun-dappled forests
tall trunks dripping ivy
-barky masses sunk deep in cool moss

varied sand rock fringes
-roiling swell of the sea...

So many worlds, so much to do ~
So little done, such things to be!
