Spring Heeled Jim
The dew settled on the shadow'd plain
and spring rang out the years past.
He staqred into this dull horizon
bleak and strange
A whispered wish flew by his head
nothing ventured nobody gained.
Tears were shed for unknown soldiers
infinite and ultimate
W/ rye smiles and hoarse cries
felt suddenly dry,
running a dirty hand over his ignorant eye.
And the universe so strong and grand
fell at his feet
and kiss'd his hand
his rings well told
a bitter tale.
