Illumination - Poem by Dirk van Oostaijen

When I am up and shining
You will be on my side
Your body; whole your being
So fresh and ready to bite

I touch your skin so warmly
This touch will let you glow
Delight will fill you calmly
Tonight you will be slow

At dawn, you are fantastic
You cannot belief its real
This love has been so hectic
Your ears will hear a peal
