Have you lost me to the evening air?
a balloon floating free at the country fair
a child dismayed
eyes flooded by glare
from the sun so bright
Did you lose me to the forest green?
a barefoot nymph, dancing unseen
dashing through thicket
dried moss to misted dust
Will you find me now the song has played?
the concert over
a sparse crowd dismayed
violin bow lowered
had but we stayed…
haunted yet by the music
