And Silent Silent Silent Go

And silent silent silent go
the last footsteps
of falling day

and silent silent silent fall
the glor’ious stars
of our decay

I stood nearby
in thought
as you peered through
the spying glass

to southern shores
dark blue
       the fields
          and rolling
          hills of grass

I said to you
my friend
my love
one day these shores
will cease
to be

but you looked on
in thought
as the waves
   rolled forward
