Something

Something is happening to my eyes;
Whatever objects I see
Leap in sudden surprise
And look back strangely at me.

                              Am I looking out?
                              Am I looking in?
                              Never mind my doubt
                              The gap is really thin.

Rhythms from depths of the seas
Flout the paces of years;
Dins hush, noises cease:
Something’s happened to my ears.

                              A sweet thrill I taste,
                              Joy and warmth feel;
                              A oneness subtle and chaste
                              That my senses conceal.

There is music in the chasm,
A haunt is in the breeze;
My lonely microcosm
Has sprung a million me’s.
