Love and Desire


Love is under seal
Still
Ever
If the water of the seas is the ink
and the feather of the birds
My pen
So the canvas of the nights of sky
Is given
As the pages of the galore
Of love
Still
The pages are plain
So to cultivate
Undoing all the fame of sadden
The heaven and the earth
Had made
Of love and desire
