    MEETING POINT
    Time was away and somewhere else
    There were two glasses and two chairs
    And two people with one pulse
    (Somebody stopped the moving stairs):
    Time was away and somewhere else.

    And they were neither up nor down
    The stream's music did not stop
    Flowing through heather, limpid brown,
    Although they sat in a coffee shop
    And they were neither up nor down.

    The bell was silent in the air
    Holding its inverted poise --
    Between the clang and clang a flower,
    A brazen calyx of no noise:
    The bell was silent in the air.

    The camels crossed the miles of sand
    That stretched around the cups and plates;
    The desert was their own, they planned
    To portion out the stars and dates:
    The camels crossed the miles of sand.

    Time was away and somewhere else.
    The waiter did not come, the clock
    Forgot them and the radio waltz
    Came out like water from a rock:
    Time was away and somewhere else.

    Her fingers flicked away the ash
    That bloomed again in tropic trees
    Not caring if the markets crash
    When they had forests such as these,
    Her fingers flicked away the ash.

    God or whatever means the Good
    Be praised that time can stop like this,
    That what the heart has understood
    Can verify in the body's peace
    God or whatever means the Good.

    Time was away and she was here
    And life no longer what it was,
    The bell was silent in the air
    And all the room aglow because
    Time was away and she was here.
