Message in Springtime

Message in Springtime

 

*

*****

Come love, come for just one day!

Don’t you know you bring the sun with you?

If you cannot visit now, then come to me in May,

Come when bulls sit and watch the flowers sway.

And even if you will not take the time

Then come for one brief glimpse.

If not, then send just a word of blessing from your lips.

No letters, promises, or rings may you send,

Send only one sky-eyed smile and it will be enough

To keep me on my way.

You need not bring a thing

We will work the harvest, the earth itself provide.

Come only with your loving eyes, your garland hair,

Your unlaced feet.

Come while the spring of life still lives!

    Really emotive, descriptive and very beautiful. I loved all the imagery and the line “…Send only one sky-eyed smile and it will be enough” is really great!
