Tenderly - Poem by Dirk van Oostaijen

When I strike you with my warm touch
A shiver is going to your light brown body
I make the sea waves high almost too much
Slowly going part by part it is not knotty

My breath is touching you in waves of passion
Pallid clouds drifting fast in the blue sky
You standing up; little fabric in latest fashion
Looking to the horizon not at all shy

I embrace you with my whole being
Standing there, waiting for things to come
All nature is working with my feeling
You are curious where all is coming from
