They indeed were comrades of the gods,
Possessed of Truth, the poets of old:
The fathers found the hidden light
And with true prayer brought forth the dawn.

In Seasons Of


In Seasons Of

In seasons of

In her language
I live

Seemliest, fairest.
My power
A gracious chance which I have received
All others removed

in her light

her eyes
With lovely face upon me

she smiled

I turn
therefore towards love,

Longing has come upon me
With clever
And a neck,  beauty whiter
than any maiden seen.

Wooing in morning

worn out from waking

Alive as in action. Happy-


Oh heart, oh love

Do not deprive me
For I have been worrying long since,
Endured for a time



Fairest beneath her clothing
A song
Of she

A song of us

Now sung
By the lark

And the mourning doves
Where time is patient

And our patience time

Ours awakened
Ours now
And for-ever.
