Fair Autumn's Kiss - Poem by David Zvekic

The summer's thirsting yearns fair autumn's kiss,
While calmest anguish (loneliness) endears,
When reunited I with whom I miss,
Flies far away from thought and disappears.
Our timeless severances, though high their price,
In fondness paid (and paid with sighs and tears) ,
And fair advances raised in old device,
Brought desperation down between the years.
Like breath that long submerged refused the air,
Or wings denied the wind whereon to fly,
With love self justified though seldom there,
So longer life could live that longed to die.
  These eyes struck blind by fear have found their sight:
  One life's existence made the other's right.
