Where to find

Text

[A book of handwritten poems, the ink almost completely faded but for a few enduring words.]


I hold my breath for the sun to fall,

For in the hot collapse of day, I'm brought to you.
While Reithwin sleeps, the world entire is ours,

The grass - our bed, the dew - our silver candles,

The moon and stars our private canopy,

And you the brightest of them all,

My light, my heart, my world.

I would watch the stars with you to the end of time -

But night forever arches into day,

And the sleepy nothing of the sunlit hours will mutter on.

So instead I shall find eternity in a moment,

And by the glance of moonbeams in your eyes will I be brought to rest

As rest should be - enduring, still,

Longing for naught but itself.
