you unyielding as the Nullabor plain and yet I
the unaccustomed rain could permeate your limestone soul
with salty tears
and should they melt a heart entrenched with past persuasions
i would drench your soul with English rain
and steel blue skies that frame a buttermilk sun
in softer light and dewy grass you'd come alive again
