Girl In A Garden


(Das Land ist licht und dunkel ist die Laube - Rilke)

The land is light, but dark the arbour
Your face broken with hair, your hands
Curled in your lap, you sleep under greenery

The morning has stopped, do not fear
That I will ever leave your shadow, let me
While in the coolness, here and eternal.

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
