Hold me still, flourish for me
Swing with me lean as a free
Butterfly breaking in flight,
Shimmering deep in the night
As bright as sea stars can see –

Lavish, with feathers and tea,
Watch from the shade of a tree
As I live on – and when time feels right
Hold me still.

Riddling and small as a flea,
One life too early to be
Half beat too late for this light –
I’ll whisper on, as a white
Spell from the stars to the sea:
„Hold me still…”
