As clothing to wear

Mark Cloutier 1972 (Kaneohe)

The light awakes the mind
As death is put to bed
It then rises as life
To the living and the dead
It then turns the eye
In a blink of the mind
As enlightenment of minds
We then walk across
The verse of words
Of an endless multiverse
Of worlds and kingdom's
One from above
Then one from below
We enter then both
And as we walk across
The verse of words
That are as endless as time
In the space that it fills
As the night closes
The day then opens
To what is unknown
That is brought to children
As clothing to wear
