A Reed Like A Measuring Rod - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

The two Olive Trees,
With minute details as they are;
But a reed like a measuring rod is in my hand,
And the writings on the alter confines your love.

The Two Lamps of the Seven Lamp-stands,
As it was with you and like my muse;
But declared to you like the colours of the rainbow!
And like the joy of my heart to kiss your lips.
