  • Not in the last things we do as the day winds down
    but in the first things we do as it beckons brand new.
    This is the way we will love my love. Not our sultry caress
    or the full-lipped embrace that entwines us
    but the iris with the daffodil, together
    countless other simplicities
    we recognize are important,
    this is the way we love my love.

    This is my heart growing round you
    new ivy of hope
    & tender green leaves to be free.
