Cradle to Cradle

Time forgets,
the seeding rots,
the water stagnates,
and the frog
hibernates

In the seasons passing
all those lives
that built the cities
glowing in the sky
at sunset time,
time forgets.

The seeding rots
when wisdom is no longer guided
but returned to the earth
to feed again the shade
that protects the wise

The water stagnates
from a creating role
to a supporting one
in the pond
with frogs and fish and lilies

The frog hibernates
the water freezes
the sap returns to root
and the cities in the sky
lift a little higher than before

Time forgets
those that lifted the cradle
to protect the wise,
from a creating role
to one of supporting,
and the cities in the sky
lift a little higher than before
