SHUT NOT THOSE EYES
Don’t shut those eyes
For there in my chortle lies.
In them I see a glaring new dawn
As your beaming smiles meld with the rising sun
To dry up the gore on my psyche left
By the gorse that once my heart cleft.
All night I yearned for your chirr-up
The only hope for my cheer-up
Now that you are here I know my tears are gone
Never again to be reborned.
For my pains you will kiss away
As my entirety with passion falls under your sway.
Shut not those eyes
The ladder to my ecstatic heights.
