YOU alone ARE the watcher and the playwright


And when you witnessed a shimmering light<br /><br />
did you feel that strange delight<br /><br />
as though you watched a play and knew<br /><br />
You alone were the watcher and the playwright.<br /><br />
You are the one who gasped at the beauty,<br /><br />
you alone were the splendour of your own sight.<br /><br />
You were not the floater, but the very wave you ride,<br /><br />
afloat you were in yourself all the while. ..<br /><br />
