The Magician
one day everything
will go like magic:
lamb, lion lie down
in greenfields of forever 
where the river of life
is only a stream
meandering thru meadows
where appletrees grow wild					
providing the only shelter
that human god or beast
might require
one day everything
will be easy
that now seems hard					
the language of the bat
and butterfly
and all the voices
not quite human--
that come too fast now
by humans to be heard
will fall like raindrops
in slow motion
needing no magician
to translate them
into human words
