a little shell
a seedling pod
fallen down

taken over
by the frost

rattle papa
like a gourd in
a band so lovely

empty pap
simply empty
so lonely and sad

don't you feel
the pain of
the little pod

No.

for this lovely
thing that will
never be

Yes.

wish papa
that no more
like this pod
will ever be

No.

the just

that I will not
become like this seed
