Night Jasmine

Remember the scent of night jasmine

The feel of the evening sun on your face

When it all gets too much

Remember the sun setting over the endless sea

The way things were, and will be once more


The sky came down today

And the seas rose to meet her

The earth did not move

And all the creatures of the earth

Fed the fishes of the seas


I can conceive no circumstances

In which I would ever consider

Committing murder

I cannot conceive

All circumstances
