Darling I hope you understand I pour not words like beach sand Each finding a place of its own Each sliding away before dawn. I weigh out words like the cornerstone I trim down sounds like the garden lawn I cut out rhymes like the roofing beam And verses bricks from the village stream. The sum a castle Strong but subtle Sweet a poesy just for you.
