Back Steve Day - The Dream of Martyres Next

If there is a dream in me
As the trains dash for a starlit shelter,
It is that we might forget our quarell,
And rest on pillows of songthrush innocence.

I go now to be burnt in the ovens
that smudge the sky.

If I am able;
I shall tip-toe all the way and thank them -
For their kindness.

You will find me one day
Whispering songs of love and unity in their busy ears,
Becuase I am the love that flared in their faces
And there is still a dream in me.
