Pome: The Waking Heart

Towards the highest of summits
touching the sun and worlds beyond
above all clouds and empty skies
where the waking heart
finds wider horizons
and the call of a greater song.

Of fathoms dark and deeper
a land steeped silent in the mire
from blood red tears
behind the greyest walls
come China's waking heart arise
like a phoenix from the pyre.
