We sat together till the gloaming fell,
The twilight gaieties of evening joy
Made mask of nothing as the choral bell
Rang pulses of her temper coy.
I reached my hand to touch her sparkling heart
And felt the childhood sunshine in its prime
And rocks iridescent - the hidden part
Of memories that filled my time,
I tried to save her from the worldwide hive
To show the frozen stars and molten sun,
She caught me in the hairnet silk to rive
The link to where the hell seemed done,
That time we left the shore where shadows twirled
Beneath the sunset calmness of the past,
And far beyond our fortune we were hurled
To see the beam for souls aghast.
We played the careless game behind the veil,
The waterfall of dew-drops fenced my bliss,
Beside the soaring of the clouds frail
The fluid daylight swirled our ease,
Inside its gleaming cascades we did swap
The varicolored necklaces of splash,
We walked along the secret downward slope
To reach the edge of rapture flash.
In through the calm of the forbidden room
With windows opened in the summer night
She carried me away from usual doom,
Down to the Eon of the Quiet.
Unfathomable fluid endless tide
Has led us to the depth of tranquil hours,
Beyond the bound of oblivion, deep inside
The interconfidence of ours.
