Before the silken reed

Photography by me

 

I looked at growing weed

Where two swans glided peacefully

Before the silken reed

They beckoned it seemed up to me

 

Had they heard my unspoken sighs

Thoughts of you, my solace?

Water hen flew across the skies

In criss-cross drew your face

 

I knelt still upon the boulder

That had the ice withstood

In love we could grow much bolder

Could we? I thought we should

Song of Return – Saint of Sin

I dreamt upon a summer night

I dreamt upon a summer night

The soft winds talked to me

Of your white wings they bore in light

Over the deep blue sea

 

I leaned upon the garden’s door

Its frame a gage of you

As your gait then appeared ashore

Our love renewed so true

 

You carried me within the flowers

You were knight, I queen Bee

They wilted as we counted hours

That you and I could see
