Just where it know lies I can no longer say I found it on a cold and November day In the roots of a sycamore tree where it had hid so long In a box made out of myrtle lay the bone of song The bone of song was a jawbone old and bruised and worn out in the service of the muse and along its sides and teeth were written words I ran my palm along them and I heard

then I saw on a white space that was left a blessing written older than the rest it said leave me here I care not for wealth of fame I'll remember your song--but I'll forget your name the words that I sang blew off like the leaves in the wind and perched like birds in the branches before landing on the bone again then the bone was quiet it said no more to me so I wrapped it in the ribbons of a sycamore tree and as night had come I turned around and headed home with a lightness in my step and a song in my bones lucky are you who finds me in the wilderness I am the only unquiet ghost that does not seek rest
