Heaven if seen from heaven


Heaven if seen from heaven
would have fields strewn with gold
flowers would be glittering damsel
dragonflies, stars, hour upon hour.

Where rivulets mingle into bays
angels would comb, golden manes
clothes unclad wash their men
and be forever eternally glad.

But this being earth not heaven
wages of sin are multiplied by seven.
Heaven if seen from heaven
would be little more than...?

An out sprawlng maiden,
coupling on a meadow bed in Devon.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
