pronominal pas de deux

I was lost in a thicket of words
suddenly the path found me
beloved    agreed:  you are my Thou
your Thou I shall be
your I and my I will be
the two of us kissing each the other
we two pronouns of love
I’ll say to you ‘my beauty’
that is to say ‘Thou from heaven
you’ll say to me ‘Poet mine’
that is to say ‘Thou of the world
well then   little dove
forever must we speak familiarly
you:  my Thou and your Thou:  I
