love’s recital (for Lan)

oh living madrigal – how I love you
my song of perfection
goddess of my art – how I love you
art of my whimsy
oh peerless flower ever new – how I love you
beauty in everything I see
stillness that spurs me on – how much I love you
oh whirlwind of my dreams
squall of kisses – how much I love you
oh rain of fingers
perfume of stars – how I love you
my silence clothed in flesh
guitar of night – how I love you
mistress of all that is gentle
oh my wild nymph – how I love you
good wench redolent of strawberries
dear owner of my soul – how I love you
spirit of my life
wellspring of goodness – how much I love you
my breath when breathless I turn
sweetness in all I sense – how I love you
joy of the body singing
oh my lively song – I love you endlessly!
