PEACEFUL PEACE

The wind goes up in smoke.

Stealing birds’ nests
dirties the atmosphere.

The moon has died at the main gate
of the walls.

Who will sell the ox and the plough?

Stealing birds’ nests
dirties the atmosphere.

Peace everywhere
crying in the wilderness.

Stealing birds’ nests
dirties the atmosphere.
