Of Love and Such
Oh sweet, my valentine
With ease and youth we lay
In the greenest patch of sod
More time for clouds and lazy smiles
Red, a love for red
A rose, nature's blush across
Your cheek supposing kisses
Mornings, the heart wakes to itself
Rising as a lark, harmoniously.
No song but your scent, no dance but your eyes
No desire but to be near you
And feel your cozy laughter ignite
In my chest with the sun.
My sweet horizon, there will never be enough
World or time to drink you up
Or ever get my fill.
I want to make you know how glad I am
To have you stirring up my heart
With the trembling of larger things.
We should take flight; still
Hand in hand, heart in clamoring heart
Just we and soft warm air
Each day together a marvel
Wherein your happiness is mine.
