Lyrics

Last night I watched my brothers play The reckless and the gentle one In a field two yards away For half a century they were gone Beyond the other side of care Even in a dream how could I dare Interrogate the happiness So widely spent yet never less Still they raced about the green Yet where I was they once had been I thought how could I be so dull Twenty thousand days ago Not to see the beauty there I asked them were they really so As you are the other day Then we played for victory Not to make each other glad Darkness covered every head A frown it twists upon your face And through the mask I could not see the grace Even in a dream how could I dare Interrogate the happiness So widely spent yet never less Just like the revolving suns So bright I could not see their eyes or Look into their paradise Where I was they once had been I have observed with foolish awe The dateless middays of the law And seen indifferent justice done By everyone on everyone And in a vision I have seen My brothers playing on the green
