THE WEDDING

THIS I told to the man
who wed my daughter…

“In the mathematics of love…
1 + 1 = 1 “

and, I so gently placed
my daughter’s hand
upon the soul I trust

THE SLEEP

i went to sleep in a bed of roses
in 1563 whilst William Byrd appointed
organist at the Cathedral —
and awoke in a dream —
in 1963 did i and took a stroll
in infant dreams, amazed was i
those colors brilliant and cold i wept
and wish i did to escape
back into that forest
where i slept — in that bed
of fragrant roses which I slept
and now a soul captured — me
a sentence i endure until that end

A HUNDRED POEMS XIIII

(TO MY DAUGHTER)

1.

What spirit imbue that flesh

a love as thy mother in her best

twinkle eye too, heart of gold

that mystic flair balance dew

upon the blade of green-soothe

And touch thy father’s heart, too!

2.

And thou tend to good deeds

that love and life bequeath all

a fire and tender twinkle too

thy father so joyous tears sing

and moon and bird-song along

shall forever follow you!

3.

Her lovely grace in turmoil say

and his heart too shall always beat

for you the world and all its gifts

not of gold or position in world

but that tender spot angels dance

that room which first I met you

A HUNDRED POEMS XIII

What gather beneath thou feet
a thorn by lost tender rose
or a shadow that wish sleep

dear love star-shine more
that path you light for me
a journey from death to life

misadventure by heart and love
what true-life doth not tend
fracture feeling we expend

love-my-loving heart sooth
a gracious wind sweep us hath
over-above and-up unto heaven
