Come skipping

Come skipping beloved

your skirts gathered around

your beautiful feet

that sing the song of the waters

the gentle breeze and the skies,

silver anklets adorning.

Come skipping

nothing can take the place

of your fragrance

wafted by the breeze

but your scented belonging.

Come skipping beloved

to satisfy the longing

your slender arms around me

the puff of your heavenly breath.

I hear the sound of her footfalls

close behind me reaching

I close my eyes and pretend

that I may hear her greeting

like the cry of the gulls over the seas.
