One heart

One heart

At the beginning there were two hearts

but now only one remains

the heart of the forest stays behind

while the heart of the sky departs

as the vaults of heaven engulf it

beyond their curling clouds


The heart of the land does not mourn his loss

for he has not lost anything

the heart of the sky was not his to start with

and from now on he won’t be distracted

by other lights but his own
