Precisely the middle

The middle of the room

The biggest room in the palace

Sits a chair.

 

Today it was empty

The chair that is

In the middle of the biggest room in the palace

But, this isn’t typical.

 

Not quite the top

The top of the mountain

The mountain across the bay

The most beautiful view.

 

Today it was seen

The view that is

Near the top of the mountain across the bay

But, this isn’t typical.

 

At the end of the dock

The longest dock on the bay

The bay by the city

Sat a boat.

 

Today it set sail

The boat that is

At the end of the dock on the bay by the city

But, this isn’t typical.

 

Along the edge

The edge of the far side

The far side of the garden

Sat a gate.

 

Today it was opened

The gate that is

Along the edge of the far side of the garden

But, this isn’t typical.

 

Beside the fountain

Amidst the flowers

The flowers beginning to bloom

Sat a boy.

 

Today he wept

The boy that is

Beside the fountain amidst the flowers beginning to bloom

But, this isn’t typical.

 

Towards the end

The end of a line

A line beneath the church

Lay a king.

 

Today he slept

The king that is

Towards the end of the line beneath the church

But, this isn’t typical.

 

Gazing through the window

The window at the top

The top of the tallest tower

Sits a boy.

 

Tonight he mourns

The boy that is

Gazing through the window at the top of the tallest tower

But, this isn’t typical.

 

Lining the streets

The streets of the city

The city by the bay

Stands a crowd.

 

Tomorrow they cheer

The crowd that is

Lining the streets of the city by the bay

But, this isn’t typical.

 

Precisely the middle

The middle of the room

The biggest room in the palace

Sits a chair.

Sits a boy.

Sits a king.

 

Tomorrow he leads

The boy that is

Who wept on the mountain

The mountain across the bay

And who wept on the bay

The bay by the city

And who wept in the garden

Amidst the flowers beginning to bloom

Who sits in the chair

Precisely in the middle of the biggest room

Of the palace in the city by the bay

But, this isn’t today

And today isn’t typical.
