A love in verse


Performed by

Umbrella, protect the precious head,

Shoulders that bare the care of many things

I love her! She holds all the strings

That tie me to the place where hope is bred

And that location is, I guess, her heart

Hold me, strong strings or I will fall apart

Caress and kiss, you bloody wind and rain

She’s not for you hungrily to soak

My touch is what she wants – that is no joke

I’m no deluded fool, not crassly vain

She loves me, holds me together

So treat her well or else, you weather


In Bath

Though you cannot see my face

Let this note for now replace

That far from lovely feature...

In the Day

Dear, the night’s long gone, the moon’s 

A refugee, the sun’s about

These many hours to come...
