all up too early

October 17, 2011

It is  “Sunken Monk”  he is called,/

Recalled by grown men/

Still in this village/ Who on their own will/

Stand on well-lit trails out/ Who when too young/

Would spy him  sit all up too early/

Dead eyes to sentient presences/

Alone with fierce pen and strong drink/

Steadfast/  And along near the last/

Of a lenient beast/ Of a dark.
