Morning and eveningMaids heard the goblins cry:“Come buy our orchard fruits,Come buy, come buy … “from ‘Goblin Market’ by Christina Rossetti
H ow often have we found ourselves lost
I n silent fury when we look and listen for shared
D reams of sparkling futures – visions and wild anthems to
D raw and sing us together – but there is only
E ver the old mad clamour for our attention: Come buy!
N o wonder we miss the crazy diamond in the dirt.
