Chirp

by Hiram Larew

Be be my through into be sky
Take as me this as beginning see
Once in keen light is your so ever I
When by alive my new else is –
How then to make us as we are like this
When where we must be such might seeds –
O see this is most by also try need
Say then above as all time is –
Be be as clear
Be be as near
Be be as here as the why is.
