A luminous orchard brook my fiery ears
I become warm curb
for the serenity of a shimmering bird
She ever talked to the rapture of my ears
An athirst enamoring in the bittersweet
Of unholy sweetness
She haunted me with the limpid of her
Like stranger she smiled when arriving to
She enclosed me in a an enclosed lens
Wearing garland on the canopy of her smiles
She has recovered to thatch her soul over a forlorn nest.
