'Onest  Orion,  like an ugly face draws 

And night's damp... dawn - dew lies; 

Therewith, shadows of hallowed mist; 

I look for you....; 

You would hold me close;  know just 

what to say. 

Shadows' world flee,---'N disappear; 

Ghostly, ---Sounds W'd  melt away;  

And the fear of the unknown--- Pass like

 brightest day; 


My Darling, ...I look for you still....and long! 

It would be divine if you were here, 

with me; Mine, just mine. 

My heart would be...Free, and my world --- 

Angel "right." 


I'll be back again...tomorrow night; --- Looking
