Of Cliffs and Waters

Cover Image

It's standing on top of a cliff
And looking down, down, way down
At a deep, dark pool;
It's leaping off of that cliff,
Feeling the wind resist your plummeting cheeks,
And every time, the moment
Just before you hit the glassy surface of that pool,
You find yourself again on the top of that cliff,
Again looking down And once again leaping,
And you leap one time with joy
And one time out of anger,
And frustration, and sadness,
And never reaching that deep, dark pool,
Because when you do find that water
And fathom its depths
There will be no more leap, no more fall,
And there will be no more future.
