this hill

             this hill
inspired by the Blue Oyster Cult song ‘The Reaper’

do not fear
these words
a hill i
stand against
the low sun
from which you
can see
the sea
and above
the clouds
forged of
light they
hardly hold
the fullness
of
do not fear
these words
a hill from
which you
may gaze
into the face
of the moon
a cast out
mirror
gather
yourself
the farthest
reach of your
skirt the
farthest
curl of
your hair
and sing
on into
the night
this hill
still
here
when eyes
can see
no more

do not fear‘.
