A Leper Of Love


The intricate veil of love

Is a cocoon of one's own conception
Diluting in the ripple of time
To unearth the essence
Behind the embroidery of the mask
A soul wanting to be loved
For who he is
A leper of love

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
