Faith

No, the

heavens

will not,

in horror,

burst

 

Though we

Lie,

mortified,

In thirst –

 

Nor  do

angels

Fear to tread

 

When we

Stoop,

Stultified,

In dread

 

*

 

The sun  will

Lazy,

lumber On

 

the stars ,

shall doze

at dawn –

 

nor  a leaf,

quiver,

lost or lorn

 

when you

and I

are gone

 

*

 

the rain will

pitter,

patter, on

 

song birds

will

twitter on –

 

the moon will

smile ,in pale

surmise

 

the lark

will lisp

at morn –

 

*

 

it is a world

of no recall

 

all’s too

swift,

forgot

 

though we

lurch on,

in love

and rhyme

 

is unmindful

of our lot –

 

*

 

all’s aswoon

in deep trance

of night

 

fed  of

the waning

hour

 

though Shiva

shimmers

in high  dance

of light –

 

earth yet idles,

in her  bower

 

*

 

so come

let us

but amble on

 

it’s over ,

in a spin,

or two –

 

look,

Nereids weep –

beneath the flood

 

and even the

Sirens –

whisper true

 

for it matters

to none

that we loved:

and lost –

 

under a sky

so blue

 

by fire did

we tie the

knot:

 

in fervor,

let’s  bid adieu
