if troubles meant


if troubles meant              took hold                                                                         

trance spent                   in  a cradle

suspent sleep                       taxted

until Autumn                  trialed lyric

wielding                  almost anything

into                                wet winter


if troubles meant              took hold

trance                           in  a cradle

suspent sleep                      taxted

until Autumn                 trialed lyric

wept in                          everything

to a rent                                 trail          


down through                          pink

language                 morning almost         

everything                   meant whole

Spring and even                it started

with troubles                              it

took hold                            trailed


down through                          pink

language                 morning almost         

everything                   meant whole

Spring even                           and if

troubles                       trance spent

in earth                                 wend
