Little Mighty


It seems am in love.
In love with a strong powerless entity.
It's name as given to her by her mother, is tree.
I want to lay my beds beside these Trees.
It is the only bride I sought and long after at present.
Its embrace of waves purifies my body and soul of its dirt.
The only abode these trees seem to be safe and pleased with, is the dark.
See how they stand tall among us!
Yet the only power they have over us is the beauty of their height.
We seem to send them into the abyss when we come near it with our zig zag knives.
I want to sleep among you,
but am so brave and curious to run away from the unseen one.

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:
