BLACK CAT POEMS
html website builder
Somewhere beyond a mountain lies
A lake the color of your eyes--
And I am mirrored like a flight
Of swallows in that evening-light.
Lovers eternal, side by side,
Closed in the elemental tide,
Nurture the root of every land--
So is my hand within your hand.
Somewhere beyond an island ships
Bear on their sails, as on your lips
You bear and tend it from the sun,
The blossom of oblivion.
Eternal lovers, in whom death
And reaching rains have mingled breath,
Are drawn by the same draught apart--
So is my heart upon your heart.
Somewhere beyond a desert rolls
An ocean that is both our souls--
Where we shall come, whatever be,
I unto you, you unto me.
