Across So Wide
the light beckons
fair bows the round window
Just the sight of the tender spill
the sweet trail of vine
laced about its curve....
star-flowers twined to night-fogged
just the sight of it comforts me,
brings Home close to my heart.
And the garden!
roses strange and familiar,
sweet grasses and lavender
scenting the pearl-dusk air....
Elanor clinging to a hand-hewn trellis....
different as well.
(if such a more there could ever be)
so light of heart,
it does my heart good.
And the dark gathers close about us,
(a kindly dark, this)
and the great cloak of stars holds us,
pinned to this place,
