Somber Letting

So on knowing is the burden that all the elders bare,
yet,the floods of forethought captured in your foldings
can't keep you from floating into the air.

With spindly hands you fill all you're ears with dance
yet flaking is your captured ambition to care.
And fishing inside you is the wanting to tell.

Through speaking and handing you're willing to share
but burdens keep babies into standing asleep.
So play your guitar and let your subtlety blair.
