First Stray


Gods morning broke
It’s a new day
bade good bye and set off for home
not to look back at love anymore
when I first strayed, leaving the path of love
divine love set its beauty on me
I fret with anxiety
My spirit sag and sway
Admirable expressions of sympathy offered by you
Which I am firmly convinced that I should love you
and what was once a source of pain
has now become love
having shed all discomfort and biding sensation of pain
now inflamed beyond measure with lofty and noble love
far loftier and nobler
I know out of fear or shame
you conceal the flames of passion within your fragile breast
and hidden love worn on your sleeve
I bag out my heart
And leap beyond faith to love and please you
and love we shall have forever

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
