Love Effigy

Haven`t seen you for a long,long,time
Moss grown over miles after miles
Cuckoo cries,nightingales neigh
Spider webs cobwebs betwix time and tide
Haven`t seen you for a long,long time
The potent,proud sky gives in to my
How I wish to be by your side and see the
Heaven together gather rain,fog,twilight
Stars smiling day and night `neath the Shawl
Of starry Disguise
You touched me;I touched you
Knees to knees;elbows elbows,lips lips,hip
hip sips deep the honey of love Oddyssey
Sky bursts open w/ rainbows myths
I in You entreat;Me in You treat
Torching the Whole Heaven w/ love Romantique
Haven`t seen You for a long,long time
Willows weep;west wind sweeps the air of
sadness w/ sorrowful sins!
