Between summers


Days of rain,
Of ashen light,
Of dull skies
And icy wind -
They to me
Are dear the most,
The most cherished, joyous, sweet.

Days of gloom and I are blood,
Bound by my childhood land,
Tied by memories so happy
They're an everlasting brand.

Days of grey are fleeting ease -
From the time of scorching sun,
From the time of blinding shine,
From the taunting drops of sweat
Trickling down my breasts and spine.

Days of cold to me are haven -
Burning candles on the table,
Boiling soup, hot tea with lemon,
Books and movies under covers,
Long, slow nights with the man I'm in love with…
Days of cold are my own heaven.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
