Rookie (04 October 1943 / Germany)

The Waters Of Love

Love can flow gently
Trickling around the heart,
Grassing bare patches of hurt
With moistest of words, well meant.

But love can cascade
Drenching the unwary soul
And setting strong traps
In which many wholy
Are caught, and alive, drown

Yet the gentlest of
Spring's afternoon rain sends
Refreshment onto bowed heads
With gestures of kindness, gained

From waters of Love.
Seen by some as hot heavy
Tears of God's angels
Cleaning heart's forests with green
Showered lovingly from above.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
