I Wish to Open a Door

I wish to open a door
That the wind has closed a thousand years ago
That I may see what’s behind it
And how dreams hide within it
I wish to see how the forgotten daffodils are faring in their corners
And the jasmine and lilac atop yonder walls
O I dream of opening a door
That the winds have closed a thousand years ago
