  • To the discerning eye
    The high desert horizon
    Is as different
    From the low desert horizon
    As day is from night

    But which is day
    And which is night
    As with wrong and right
    Is for each eye
    To discern

    I will dream
    Of the high desert
    While away there

    As I've daydreamed
    Of the low desert
    Tucked away here
