Heartbeat


My hand over my chest
The rhythm thru my hand
Blood that gives life
Blood that makes me stand

That precious beat
That holds me to this earth
In that small beat
My whole life is worth

So quickly that flame
Can be blown out
Yet in life we seem
To be in doubt

That as quickly as is lit
The beat is taken away
That our simple heartbeat
Anytime may give way.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
