breath that breathes


What is that sound, breath that breathes on you
who is it that breathes on me, that is the breath of
Her that breathes aloud on you, what is that warmth I feel
that is the warmth of her who breathes on you,
what is that ache I feel were her Arm and leg touches mine
that is the Love you feel for her who's arm and leg holds you,
it is the Arm and leg of her that holds your warmth and love,
is the breath that breathes of her the one that makes the sound
yes she is the one, who is she that I have found,
she is the wife of you, wake her not, let her sleep
Do not make a sound

Poem of the Day

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
