The Rivers I Have Hidden From The Sea / 2011

The Stars Hold No Rain

Grow 'til tall.
I will carry you
even after you are.

The trees protect us,
so climb, reach for the clouds,
the stars hold no rain for saplings to suckle.

Stand on my shoulders
and pocket the open sky
to keep in your cedar box.

Even the sun sleeps,
so close your eyes and dream,
the night holds the tomorrows you awake older.
