Like birds at twilight my thoughts to you flock,
Their clamors like stars waving your each lock
And falling, myriads, showering your skin
With the sighs of a heart in your love burnin’.
Calm eye of the dawn,
Folded in the wings of love
Each breath a flower.
In her dark curls a lifetime flows
Steeped in a joy so deep it glows
Like stars thick in the summer sky
Each a laugh and a burning sigh
As if an endless pain heaved
All in red is deeply seared,
The flame that burns, eats her whole,
Leaves no flesh nor bone nor soul.
What is it worth this short life of ours
If the sun breaks not in darkened hours?
If a breath is not allowed our hearts
How are we to shatter the bleak towers?
Over the earth a song plays
Stirring the stars’ dust.
Cradle of passion,
Our soldered bodies melting,
House of flame and love.
