yellow spots come dancing

here before my eyes,

and to my mild surprise

appear to be really green.

This is one of the strangest things

I think I've ever seen.

I know that when they end, I end,

alone again, with no defence,

yet sense that every single thing

could safely stop beyond the fence,

and all may yet be right,

if I can see the morning

before I see the night.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

A mild surprise from Brendan the bold. Enjoyed and agree with the sentiments. Speculation: could yellow turning to green be a reference to an Irishman living in Japan? ;)

A bit o' fun. Reminds me of: "Before I lay me down to sleep... And if I die before I wake, I pray god my soul to take..." ;-)

A few small changes, most of them restoration of original lines & phrasing. I know it looks pretty simple ... but it is the opposite of simple to write!

 

Cheers, Bren

新年おめでとうございます!
