And I Shall Lie Me Down

pine-tree-bonzai

And I shall lie me down  
beneath a cedar pine  
where its blue shadows 
fade noon’s intensity.  

And I shall lie me down  
beside a rushing stream  
where cascading waters   
soothe errant tumbling thought.  

And I shall lie me down  
deep in spicy aromatics    
where rich golden resin    
suffuses breathless air.   

And I shall gather up  
into transcendent sunshine  
where all pain and sorrow  
disperse to eternity.
