Those Darling Little Fires

Let me kiss away
Your tears
Those darling little fires
That burn the face so red

Let me kiss
Away those
Rivers that carve paths
Into the saddest earth
Into the softest mud

Let me
Kiss away
Those gentle
Prisms full of light
Glistening white

Let me kiss
Dirty little tugboats
That pull so hard at this
Frail old heart

And tomorrow
Let me kiss away what
Once was
An ego becoming a god
And a power over all the rain

Let me kiss away
Those darling little fires

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
