As That Colored Horn Blew, Her Steps Shed Light


I fear not tell for the reason of losing you
for a moment, passion hushed
the climax felt between her and I lingered without touch
not knowing to walk she fluttered
not knowing to speak she spoke as heaven to the clouds
again she asked is this the way to heaven
the chill from the concrete kissed the warmth of her feet
the sun envied every step she made
she'd only smile at the thought that blossomed
we loved without reason
we loved without sound
the total embodiment of what we pictured heaven to be
conceptions that dwelt in the whispers of our breath
lost only as the light that wonders into day again she asked
is this the way to heaven

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
