Sad Oblivion...#2


If I had known the hill was bathed
By silver oceans from the moon
If I had known the gentle wind
Would compose so fine a tune…
If I had known the stars above
…as we lay upon the grass
Without a sound, would dazzle us
Dusted on a sea of glass
If I had known the night would be
The gentler moment of my day
Where nagging of anxiety
Amidst such bliss would melt away
If I had know the dusty lane
Wild-flower kissed would wind and gleam
And beckon lover’s there to stroll
On a highway to a dream
If I had known the grass would spread
Like diamond fields beneath our feet
I would not have gone to bed
And simply drifted off to sleep…
