SONGS TO A WOMAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You are like startled song-wings
Last Line: No more complete than now.
Subject(s): Courtship


You are like startled song-wings against my heart
Which flutters like a harp-string wounded
By too much quivering music.
You cover me with a blue dream-robe
Whose silk ripples out like imaged water.
And when, for a moment, you leave,
I am a black sky awaiting its moon.

If I could be moonlight scattered out
Over the blowing dark blue hair
Or kneeling flowing crystal breezes
Breathing a litany of pale odors;
If I could be moonlight scattered out
Over the whispers meeting in your heart,
The marriage of our souls would be
No more complete than now.
