Get me worms of silk for the runes and a dewdrop,
Seven folds of veil for a cocoon and a dewdrop.
The mirror is in youth, and the jasmine in bloom,
Smoky is the kohl like the moon in a dewdrop.
Someone chiselled a solitaire on the finger of my beloved,
I will dance with her shadow on the lagoon of a dewdrop.
A pack of wolves ravaged a blossom last darkness,
The sword of law is a tender harpoon of a dewdrop.
The toccata of rain on the tin top all night,
The destitute feast in spittoons and a dewdrop.
Zealots of a toy god slaughter real people,
And soar to the heavens on balloons of a dewdrop.
Uma, give us bread and justice unfettered,
Dreams of life fade in the noon like a dewdrop
