Beloved

In what other lives or lands Have I known your lips

Your Hands Your Laughter brave Irreverent

Those sweet excesses that I do adore.

What surety is there That we will meet again

On other worlds some Future time undated.

I defy my body's haste.

Without the promise Of one more sweet encounter

I will no deign to die.
