Yesterday I walked the world alone
Sunlight caught a glade of cobblestone
Trees like death slowly lost their leaves
Woodland sounds like doors swing at the breeze

Twigs beneath my feet like bones
Yesterday's life new is crumbling old
Trees like towers once so high
Till storm and lightning fall them from the sky

Dead limb creaks like someone's dirty laugh
or girder rusting slowly starts to crack
Here is dream flows into a cave
Like gutter cracked to subway slowly drains

Berries ripe unto the ground they fall
Dust plays ghostly instruments in silent halls
Through the world silence it did creep
And rapped the world in everlasting sleep


Written around 1968. Known from a notebook with handwritten lyrics sold at an auction in 2006.
