Sometimes your eyes do catch mine


Sometimes just for a moment your eyes do catch mine
and I am lost in their depths.
Sometimes I see small bird tracks
from the times that you do laugh
and sometimes you do smile brightly
like the summer sun.

Sometimes your eyes are turbid
as if the season of winter
does continue forever sadly,
as if the night will never again past

and sometimes your eyes are full of hope
like a new spring that does arrive
and you do change me
to also notice the bright light

in everything that has been, that is
and that has still got to happen.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
