Odds and Ends pt 1

I'm cleaning up my hard drive today and found a few interesting things that have been accumulating here is the first one:

I go among trees and sit still
all my stirring becomes quite around me like circles on water
my tasks lie in their places where I left them asleep like cattle

Then what is afraid of me comes and lives awhile in my sight
what it fears in me leaves me and the fear of me leaves it
it sings and I bear it's song

Then what I am afraid of comes I live for a while in it's sight
what I fear in it leaves it and the fear in it leaves me
it sings and I hear it's song
