Your eyes glow like adjacent sunny glades
That lure me urgently to tread the gold
Ethereal pasture round that pool so deep
Where I may see myself till sunshine fades
And leaves me feeling lost and cold
With cows like those in Pharaoh's dream to keep,
Blue's for hope increasing distance
Drawn out taut will stand the tug,
Anchored to ensure persistence
In the parting kiss and hug.
There isn't much to have or give,
I beinq old and she still young,
But a kiss now and then and a hope to live
in her heart like a song that's sung and re-sung.
