Going Up On the Hill

Going Up On the Hill

This is the house
where is the house

The yard has cantered away

One day you might be roaming the desert sand
and there is the room you slept in
where you rested so well

It is real You can touch the sheets
and fold them back

This bed is the medicine
Even thinking of this bed is the medicine

You can leave the desert in the morning

  1. I think all of this is very strong, and I like it--but nothing as well as the verb here: "The yard has cantered away."
