Love-Arrested Wings - Poem by Nigel Stuart

From the beginning to this trysted time
The ordered universe ne’er missed a beat;
The sun across the heavens’ arch would climb,
Though sundered lovers’ hearts could still not meet;

Or moons would wane, or stars would dim, or seas
Retire, despite love's soaring hopes sublime,
Until our passion’s puissant odyssies
Upset the cosmic order in its prime.

Then, harnessing the wind, I crossed the sky
From North to South our hot love to appease,
And West to East you ’gainst the sun did fly
To compass, as we met, the world’s dis-ease.

Now time, sun, moon, stars, seas and planes in silence hung
As round us, laughing, was our supernova flung.
