Ways of Wonder (poem)

I thought of you the other night

When gentle stars where burning bright

And hearts again were taught to sing

Of ways of wonder hid from sight

-

I heard their voices welcoming

Me once again to drink from spring

There in a meadow near a dream

Where ways of wonder are waiting

-

The ways of wonder starts with kiss

Which leads to worlds of never known

Forever lost yet not alone

The ways of wonder starts with this

-

And there in mists of sultry steam

Which seems to rise from passion’s stream

I heard soft whisper beckon me

In ways of wonder’s pleasure scheme

-

I do not need mere eyes to see

The one who rules my fantasy

And with her smile commands the stars

Oh ways of wonder set me free

-

The ways of wonder starts with this

A paradise we’re never shown

With yearnings we cannot postpone

Not even time dare rush this bliss

-

Nameless sublime will hush this bliss

With music of sweet lovers’ tones

And memories which stars will own

Which ways of wonder starts with kiss

-

I drift back from this dream of ours

Enchant realm which nothing mars

The gentle stars still spark delight

Which ways of wonder never bars

-

The ways of wonder starts with kiss

Which leads to worlds of never known

Forever lost yet not alone

The ways of wonder starts with this
