It's Pledged

Clouds gather on the horizon
Dark and ominous and brazen

The evening light distorted
Reality gaily aborted

Tentative sliver of pearl light
Empowering my eager sight

On the rippled water it’s pledged
Your long forgotten face edged


*pledged (v): to drink a toast to somebody

“Drink to me, only with thine eyes, 
And I will pledge with mine”
Ben Jonson, To Celia
