The Lilt of Orpheus

(25th Nov 1963 / Sydney)

Soul Mate Ships on the Seas. (short)

Come sail from time where death we be
Come sail from death into birth with me
Come sail your birth to a lifetime with me
Come sail your lifetime to thoughts of me
Come sail your thoughts to the mind of me
Come sail your mind to the body of me
Come sail your body to the flesh of me
Come sail your flesh, find n’ touch me
Come sail your touch to rhyme with me
Come sail your rhyme come lay with me
Come sail your lust on the seas of me
Come sail your seas into the heart of me
Come sail your heart for the love of me
Come sail your love with the soul of me
Come sail your soul I have longed for thee
Come sail with me for eternity, our destiny
Come sail our destiny, karmic ships we be
Come sail the Milky Way…come with me

    A impressive lilt of Orpheus. Two soul mates coming from another lifetime to this one, discovering each other through mind, emotion, soul, love and lust. The milky way is the cream at the bottom to sail away into the sunset... A creative and great write! 10 love Karin (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
