London Bridge


If you can wait for dolphins, you can surely wait for me.
See these embers on my curtains? They will burn, most certainly.
 
London Bridge is falling down
So let’s go to Chinatown

 
Wedge yourself a little deeper with elation in the seat;
Benedictions line the courtroom for the ones without deceit.
 
London Bridge is breaking up
Bitter coffee in your cup

 
Something horrid shines at twilight in the oak tree in the yard.
Nightfall comes—look, there’s the shining! O this creature’s eyes are hard!
 
London Bridge is passing by
Even ravens start to cry

 
There’s nothing like the fury of an ancient prophecy
To make your spirit soar on high, then plummet to the sea.
 
London Bridge has flown away
Come again another day

fruit of prophecy—
a virgin bears a baby
barn straw scents the night

As it was foretold,
a Virgin bears a baby—
jasmine scents the night.
