Treasure Island

(Jan 21,1960 / NEW YORK)

the rain just now


the difference
between man
and animal

the rain just now
has watered
a garden that sprouts
a million buds

the difference
between man
and animal

the rain just now
the garden has
burst into a million
poetry of alluring scents,
love quests, and
winning of hearts

two physiques
drenched cold
seeking warmth
in each other

the difference
between man
and animal

the rain just now
the garden is now
a million blooms
of my thoughts, love
and hope

so riveting and
riotious
the butterflies
and bees
are waltzing,
kissing, drinking and
partying to their
enchanting
and multi hued
symphonies

the raindrops
on the roses
refresh and crystalise
my thoughts

the dew
drenched lotus
cleanses my heart

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
