Contentment
- - - - - - - -
One longing I had
One dream I had
One prayer I had
And that ended
With the perception of you
Like a wave in the sea
Like a cloud in the sky
Like a breeze in the air
Blooming in Eden
A pretty pretty flower
Moons offered
Suns offered
Paradise offered
Humbly I refused
For such a grandeur
In shape and size
Before whom all others are lies
A visage where dreams twinkle
Sense and sweetness roll
And in cheek shines dimple
Must be an angel
Of innocence and conscience
And that speaks a mind within
No more draught
Only floods I see
Of a perfect bliss
Of such a tenderness
Of love blessed and contented as sea…….

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
