I go sparkling


I go sparkling, I go imagining, the tinkling of a bell,
of a boy, the bell on his ankle, the boy walking beside an elephant,
I go dreaming, I go deep into the shade of the banyan tree,
they are seeds on a branch where hunger teaches light,
life is a melody, a wise elephant, mother,
round, with another, I go,
where she carries
me.

oh William this is so so beautiful and endearing and enchanting, letting go in trust and imagination, I keep on re-reading it because it is magical

I’m so glad this little verse strikes you that way, Lorraine. Thank you.
