Lucky are the forgotten

Lucky are the forgotten, they live on
in violet and jasmine. Until death
the sun is always setting, never gone
from the sky; the golden light through
a high window, always on the wall.

The forgotten sip daily from a cup
dipped once in an alpine stream;
they transverse tussock and rock
to find one small flower to press
like the ancients into a book.
