The Bush

 

Soft other abreast gaiac omphalos
From and to which        to wish the swell
Eternal recurval return
            Beloved be love ed
Where from to which foamy
            or forest shore can we or you      or you or in you
Seek sweeter fruition                 
Hail or hoist cumuluscent curve
come, come
            which come here
