Are You Mine To Keep?


I haven’t slept in so long
like new penguin father longing for his mate
like a cold winter
I wait and wait
I haven’t slept in so long
like the waiting for your lover
like the time spent away
I wait and wait
I haven’t slept in so long
but I won’t sleep
until you are here
and are mine to keep

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
