The meadow so full of poppies
red lake rippling in the noon day sun.
You like a child caught on some
Yellow dress – flying your laughter

placed to perfection.
Forgive me my measured reaction
haste always makes mistakes.
Come close your face
in a thousand, tender imaginings
I’d settle for, just one:
If, that one – you would let me keep…
