Reeds

They grow so tall
like solemn reeds,
swaying in the morning sun,
and rustle when the wind blows,
only when the wind blows.

Like revelers with the saddest songs
the wind tells them to sing along,
but to and fro with tame resolve
they move, and grow, and life goes on,
softly in the morning sun.

When the wind has come and gone,
and silence is the evening song,
they’ll be at rest, but shiver some,
gently in the falling sun.
