The Dreamer, and the Deceiver.

By TheProphetUntold


There was a time,
I could rid all I had gathered,
and speak to the trees.

To the wind, to the water
to the sun, to the soil.

I knew their names.

. . .

When the wind would sing,
pines would sigh remembrance,
and the streams would weep.

Ev'ry stone, and ev'ry leaf,
all the thrumming birds and bees.

I knew their names.

. . .

Though I knew it was a dream,
I could see beyond my reach.

. . .
