After Eternity.


Went your day well?
Did the bluebird I sent
land on your shoulder
and flutter you into delight?

Goes your sleep well?
Were your nightime dreams
lit with the stardust I ordered,
and did my love warm
every corner of your
heart until dawn?

Ends your noon well?
Do you realize it is I arrange
sunbeams to play
gently around your eyes,
and persuade
afternoons to lighten
your workaday
load with heightened
moments?

Falls your evening well?
Did you know I parcel
every daytime
shower from early skies
so tightly
that there becomes
by eventide
only rainbowing arcs
of love's tenderest
colour abiding,
to remind you of me?

Works your life well?
Are you aware dear love
your welfare
comes first and
your faraway friend
cares deeply
that you really enjoy
life within
destiny's calling
alongside me
until after eternity?

    wonderful metaphorical expression suggesting the happiness:


    Did you know I parcel
    every daytime
    shower from early skies
    so tightly
    that there becomes
    by eventide
    only rainbowing arcs
    of love's tenderest
    colour abiding,


    excellent lyric poem

    works your life well; enda your noon well; falls your evening well....after eternity, what have we got, what ends well? Fay, this is what poetry gives me, all that I haven't got, and can't get. except 'after eternity.' This is transcendental. Again, happy New Year, Fay
