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 honeydew brown eyes
By the river spree-

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