Another Decade of Destinations John Gallas

Stanislav Neumann (1875-1947). Czech Republic

Winter Night

Not this world, but a dream.
Spellbound lustre-light
on glazed waves of fields
under the sky's black blind.

Not this world; not like it.
The air of white roads
that fetch stardazzle into their dip
to give their quiet shine.

Not this world, but a slip
of never-endingness.
And I dream of white forevers
in my own stopped shadow.


Anon. Myanmar

Lullaby
