Turtle Doves

My kingdom for a poet

My castle for a verse

My fingers for a sonnet

My love to nurse


All my loves

Like turtle doves

Cooing in a branch

Time is short


The answer is not here

It lies on the crest of a wave


I await all the hugs and kisses

That your life endures

I await the grouchy feelings

That life matures


And when I awaken

I look into the future

And see my reflection

In your eyes

◄ Ten Green Bottles

I Love It ►
