 Your words dropped into my heart like pebbles into a pool, 
Rippling around my breast and leaving it melting cool.
Your kisses fell sharp on my flesh like dawn-dews from the limb, Of a fruit-filled lemon tree when the day is young and dim.
But a silence vasty-deep, oh deeper than all these ties Now, through the menacing miles, brooding between us lies.
And more than the songs I sing, I await your written word, To stir my fluent blood as never your presence stirred.
