The Mongolian Yurt
In the midnight
the skylight is crowded with stars
and, in the depths of forest
that sound of the wind, like rolled
In the midday an open wood door, it
leads to the blue sky, white clouds
there, long songs never die like the steppes
and men never find it easy to say the word ‘I love you’
