Yet the Runner keeps on running. There is fear of

Robbers, and greater still the fear of sunrise!

Letters come in such great variety- people write

Out of amour, happiness, memories, longings

Out of sadness and grief. No one will ever read

The letter expressing his sorrow; the dreams of his

Life only the reeds under his feet will know.

In the villages and cities, no will ever know

Of his heartbreaks; in the black envelope of the night
