The Truth Of Night

Written by: Tony Bush

(for Jules)

I knew you not, and yet your depictions
Directly ruled my inner sight,
And endless conversations we have had,
In vaulted confines of the truth of night;
Whispered beauty, uttered grace,
Breathed flame upon the candles blessed alight.

And in not knowing you, until your revelation
Eternal assignations we have made,
And tightly held each other to the end
Held each other in the velvet shade;
And blindness lifted from my eyes and saw
The splendour and desire that Gods have made
