The sun the sun

comes round the corner

like a shining knight of old

galloping over the landscape

on the horses of morning

And shaking his lance over us

in trance of night

awakens us to speak or sing

to banish death and darkness

And each steed a word

each verb a stallion

reared up against all ignorance

Untamed rampant radicals

in dictionaries of light
