Laid Low.

I am down in a low place now -
Broken down,
brought low to the ground!

Sometimes . . . 
 I think i hear hearts pass - 
Sometimes simpler forms than these,

Sometimes i lay beside myself
and listen to the trees!

While i lay down,
while I lay low, low to the ground.

Did you hear the race today?

I did. Hidden here, way low down!
I heard the race, I matched its pace,
I dreamed I brought it down.

Down where i am. Laid low now.
low to the ground!
