Slept with shadows and searched the earth;
longing to find armistice. Thus signed both
names with breath when rescued him from
death. Entranced with cherry tobacco scent
lingering soft upon your coat; while sharing
summer eve so sweet – dining with hot wine
Lo! such strange perfume did he with roses
paint; thus shades of passion meld with soft
untroubled kiss. Oh scent as deep as waters
mend these throes of pain; silence and song
of heart with hope broke loose again. Hence
love and madness ran swift along with rain.
Smiles adorned and blessed the shore;
Knowing bliss shall reign forevermore.
