Brightened belle -
let down the sun in your hair
and dance with me in the moonlight
as we set sway to the laughter of falling leaves
and the lonesome jubilee of owl song
Then darken your eyes and kiss me but once
if only you to see the sparkle in mine
and be the stillness in my arms
‘til the morning
- comes
