Promise Me

Promise Me
When the misted hill
Shivers first
You will be my blanket
Forever and 

That on the long walk
Promise me still
Your arm will join my elbow, 
Like Siamese twins,
When day gathers night

And in our room,
 The outlines we make
Etch the shadows

Then again,
Promise me the 
Just behind that bend in your knee
That whispers 

And not the least,
 Promise me
 The cleft and borrow between
Yours eyes and hair
Where kisses are born

 So too,
When the sun is furthest in our tender sleep 
The curve we make is gentle,

 Yet, above all,
 When we rise to greet the
 Almsman’s bell

Promise me.
