The world is bigger now, it seems.
My horizons stretch like a pelican’s wings
From shimmering waters to shadowy mountains.
This land now seems so peaceful and still,
So quiet compared to its tumultuous past,
That I could almost forget that it was my own.
My heart; my heart! That beats in time again.
So gently restored to its former benevelance
The storms receded, the frost has thawed.
Despite my ever-expanding garden green
It’s still so easy to get lost in the sky
In a world so vast, there’s room for two.
