Weeping in riddles for the truth that lies
behind a fine curtain, an inbox of life

Silent suns pass through the street today
razing brazen souls with invisible rays

A bell tinkles in a memory classroom
an unwiped blackboard clings to chalk dust

Catching a few drops of merciful rain
for youth’s sake, we move on and away

stray pages flutter in yesterday’s breeze
showing us dreams abandoned on the way.
