A curve of summer hissing
A ripple in the eye
A bending line of space and time
A bluer kiss of sky
A light that dances richly
A silken masquerade
So filled with longing long ago
So poignantly now fades
In gaze that opened slowly
Upon creation’s art
Which only dies before our eyes
Remembered in the heart
