The Horseman

by Aidan Andrew Dun


In whirling of dust
on the river-road
the world-fields and
star-systems form.

Sparks from the stones
of the ground fly up
in the shape of
brilliant suns.

There are cyclic movements
in the masses of dust;
there are countless
grains of light.

And all the accidents of
perfection come to pass
in an ancient
culmination of dreams.
