Earth, stream and tree encircled by sea Waves sweep the sand from my island. My sunsets fade. Field and glade wait only for rain Grain after grain love erodes my High weathered walls which fend off the tide Cradle the wind To my island.
Gaunt granite climbs where gulls wheel and glide Mournfully glide o'er my island. My dawn bride's veil, damp and pale, Dissolves in the sun. Love's web is spun, cats prowl, mice run Wreathe snatch-hand briers where owls know my eyes Violet skies Touch my island, Touch me.
Dark harbor quays like fingers of stone Hungrily reach from my island. Clutch sailor's words, pearls and gourds Are strewn on my shore. Equal in love, bound in circles. Earth, stream and tree return to the sea Waves sweep sand from my island, From me.
