Lost and Found

Not over stiles

Nor by country miles

Not across still lakes

Nor in mountain caves

Not in forests green

Nor in fabled scenes

Of far away city twisting streets

Never there will you find me


Isolation's nearer than you perceive


Just as absence hearts will grieve


Loneliness amplifies in crowds

What? Yes

Loneliness amplifies in crowds


Separation swells when you're around

You won't find me in hermit's gowns

For I'm most lost in my home town

Isolation's not some destination

But wrapped inside friends' brief hesitations
