There were these sheep

In the dream

Over to my left

All in a fold

Huddled silently on the grass

In the steady March rain

The way Iíd seen cows group

For so many years

In frosty pastures


I was walking on the lane

Past those sheep

They were so near the fence

Against it, practically

Usually they werenít, I knew.


Then two sheep eyes met mine

A lambís eyes

And they bore right through me

As if giving me some kind of message

I felt strange, as if I were

In their grasp almost

Then I realized Iíd

Stopped walking

And it became clear: the message

Those little eyes meeting mine conveyed.


ďOh yes, Iím coming back.

Donít you take it lightly,Ē


They said.

Then I resumed walking

Down the lane

But all day I saw those grasping

Little eyes of that lamb.
