Pines

Surrounded by pines
I wither there
Fortuitous springs
Bring no nourishment.

Abundant foliage
Brings desire
But banishment
Sends regret

Joy, gladness, delight,
Lamentation, destruction,
Sunlight, moonlight,
Abundant shadow.

Mysterious secrets,
Lakes of silver gloom,
Loom in the night
To slay delight.
