Cover of Love – a poem

Sunny strands of honey hair

Kiss my hand and linger there

Supple skin of milky moon

Gently spin a lover’s tune

Silently you sleep in the cover of love

Quietly I weep in the cover of love

Such melancholy thoughts forced 

To dwell in folly’s remorse

Nag my mind with bitter guilt

How unkind when passions wilt

When love’s cover is dispelled by the rising dawn

Farewell to the blushing wonder now far gone

Sweet and shameful love of mine

Warm you came to intertwine

Icy eyes now meet my gaze

Lovely lies: you made me dazed

Thrown off without care fall the bed coverings

Discarded so alike the cover of love.
