On The Wings Of Love - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Mayfly if ever an angel be
It was you and me
Pirouetting in the air so free
Above a cobweb lea

If ever a child had azure blue wings
As blue as a periwinkle sky
Then sweet tenderfoot, swimming…
It must have been you and I

Down amongst the meadows
Where the green-woods wend
Down amongst the willows
Where the reeds draught an end;

There I came a dancing
A roving like a bee
With honey-dew brown eyes
By the rivers spree-

Soft as ephemeral moonlight
You took wing with me
Oh mayfly green and tender bright
True angels once were we!
