about

This fountain must be sealed, as well you know.
Your heart will flood with what, blood-ripplingly,
Can never be. Your drowning will be slow.
Go at once. Trickling in search of the sea,
Moon-silvered fingers form pools ankle-deep.
You pulled a double rainbow from your sleeve:
A bit of luck. But words unuttered keep
You stuck. A fool in thrall, you fall, deceived.
Oh no - Oh Christ! - an iridescent Love
Has come. Between the leaves, Her beauty snuck.
That madly flutter-sparking soul above
Is yours. An emerald endlessness took
Its husk. She was, is still, the summer’s long
Enrapturing – the river’s looping song.
